Creativity has been proclaimed the skill of the future. It was, therefore, an easy decision to launch our latest series Heavy Chef Raw in one of Cape Town’s most creative communities, Khayelitsha.

On September 8th 2018, Masechaba Ndlovu comes to the historic Bandwidth Barn venue in Lookout Hill, in the centre of South Africa’s second largest township, Khayelitsha.
