CCC enlists the support of two Cape Town companies
The Cape Cultural Collective is proud to announce that we have established partnerships with two companies that will support us with fundraising as well as networking and communication.
Donny Jurgens Development Services is spearheading an initiative aimed at making the CCC self-sustainable within a year. This will primarily happen through the expansion of the Circle of Culture platform to way beyond its current contributor base of 40 people. More information on the Circle of Culture appears on our website and FB page.
Donny Jurgens is an activist and development worker who has worked extensively in the areas of sports and community development. He has worked variously as a teacher, a senior sports administrator and as a community outreach officer. In preparation for the 2010 World Cup, he and his team trained about 120 young leaders from across Cape Town in various aspects including personal goal setting, event management, leisure and recreation. He has also worked in leadership positions in various tiers of government. More information can be found on his website Donnyjurgens.co.za
