STAND Foundation’s vision is to nurture, promote and celebrate contemporary South African dance and theatre and provide platforms for those who make their living within the sector, to do so, and affirm their creativity and human dignity.  To do this, requires partnerships throughout the whole ecosystem, including audiences.

In this regard, STAND Foundation aims to develop an extensive database of South Africans who will subscribe to the STAND Foundation for at least R100 per month (R1200 per year).  

Subscribers will receive a range of exclusive online and physical benefits such as invitations to readings of new plays, interviews with top directors and choreographers, opportunities to observe rehearsals, free or reduced-fee access to STAND projects, and so on.
