What we do

Our story

Blackboard was created with the belief that the South African creative industry will be more impactful if it’s racially diverse. But the issue starts in high school. Most township students don’t consider creativity as a career path simply because they don’t know it exists. Our ambition is to change that. One student at a time.

Since its inception in 2017, Blackboard has introduced over 70 students to the world of creativity.

After 3 years running in Cape Town, in 2020 the organisation expanded to Johannesburg and beyond.
