Internships at Monkeybiz
Monkeybiz is a non-profit beading project supporting women in Khayelitsha, one of Cape Town’s largest townships. Monkeybiz is dedicated to reviving the tradition of African beadwork by taking the love and knowledge that is passed down, over the centuries, from mother to child and turning this into contemporary artworks. These are then sold online and through various shops, and the artists are empowered bead by bead to become breadwinners and community leaders. As a result, women are financially empowered, crafters become artists, and the art of beadwork is revived.
