Funda Community College - Soweto

Funda Community College – Soweto is an educational institution for visual arts in South Africa. Founded in 1984, Funda is one of the oldest independent training institutions in the visual arts in South Africa, established in response to the inaccessibility of specialised training in the visual arts for black South Africans under apartheid. Built on land donated by the Urban Foundation and IBM, Funda continues to serve as a critical point of access to the visual arts sector for young black South Africans.

Funda was built to provide a source of arts education in the aftermath of the student uprisings of 1976.
