Welcome to Isithatha

Isithatha is the Xhosa word for a pinpoint of light in the distance that keeps us from despair. Gqebera is the Khoisan name for the green hills and lush forested valley around the Baakens river. It is also the indigenous name for ‘Walmer Township’.

We aim to promote the creation of a multi-functional facility accessible to people from both sides of the ‘Apple Express’ railway track that is suitable for all the arts, including dance, the visual arts, music and drama.
