The Platform was established in 2017 by Kirsten Adams, a student at the Stellenbosch Konservatorium. Their vision is to foster a hub of collaborative arts within Stellenbosch as a means of giving back to society. The Platform does this with contemporary new music and contemporary dance, and raises their proceeds to contribute to a different non-profit organisation each year, and ultimately to benefit all spheres of need in our society. For more information, like their page on Facebook & Instagram or email Kirsten Adams at .



This year The Platform’s beneficiary is The Anna Foundation, which seeks to implement programs of literacy skills, fitness and self esteem building within schools of rural areas in the Western Cape.
