Supporting Local Talent
Solo Studios provides a platform for emerging and aspiring artists, and for those who engage in the arts on a part-time basis, and an outlet for them to sell their works directly to distinguished art buyers, alongside world-renowned artists from the Valley.
Priority is given to people from disadvantaged communities, many of whom have exceptional talent but who, because of challenging circumstances, have not had opportunities to develop their skills or benefit financially from them.
Joseph Dhafana gives back
Joseph Dhafana donating a portion of his profits to the Goedgedacht Trust in Esterhof. Joseph sold a selection of his Mosi wines during Solo Studios 2018 and pledged a portion of the proceeds to educational charities. Now one of the leading Sommeliers in South Africa, Joseph achieved this feat with pure determination and hard work, but he has always said that it would not have been possible without a sound education.
We thank you Joseph, for the generous donation, and salute you for your achievements and generosity!
