New safe space opens in Deep South

2018-10-30 06:02

Vulnerable children who are in need of care, protection and guidance will be able to ask for assistance at The Tree House, a new safe space in Kalk Bay.

“The past week we held fundraisers at the Kalk Bay Theatre to raise funds to officially open our doors and to raise awareness in the community about the increasing need for safe houses in the geographical area of the Deep South. The guests spent the evenings enjoying two new dance pieces by Can Creative, headed by Ciara Baldwin and Nathan Bartman. Their most recent work, Sentient Being, is the commissioned work by the Baxter Dance Festival, which is currently running,” says Alison Brown, social worker at The Tree House.

According to her they aligned themselves with Here Manje, a New York-based production company.

“The core mission of Here Manje is to continue to create a space for people of all walks of life to feel heard and given the opportunity to create their vision. By producing original projects and being present in every moment of the creation process, performance run or business interaction with honesty and respect for all involved — Here Manje leaves behind a relevant and passionate footprint. Luke Brown, owner of Here Manje, is based in the USA but his heart is in Cape Town,” she says.

According to her their mission statement as The Tree House is to raise children from beginning to end, while teaching, building and growing them into adults who will go forward and become better political and spiritual leaders, better mothers and fathers, better brothers and sisters – citizens who are not defined by their past but will define the future of our country.

“We know The Tree House will be successful due to the need and due to the collective of people who stand in solidarity with the concept that resonates so universally,” Brown says.
