Written by on 29 March, 2021

Legendary DJ, Black Coffee, has thrown his weight behind a campaign to help struggling tertiary student in the creative arts industry.

The The Fashion. Art. Music. (F.A.M.) Academy has formed a partnership with the public benefit organisation, Feenix, to launch a two-week crowdfunding campaign.

Launched in 2017 in response to the #FeesMustFall movement, Feenix is a public benefit organisation that works with all 26 public universities to ensure a future of debt-free education.

Feenix’s Chief Executive Officer, Leana de Beer, says they are excited about the collaboration with visionary fine artist Nelson Makamo and Black Coffee.

“With this campaign we are hoping to raise R3 million over the next two weeks for tertiary education students and the funding will be earmarked for the students in the creative disciplines first, both for undergraduates and those with historical debts,” explains de Beer.

Through crowdfunding, Feenix has disbursed over R76 million to more than 1910 students’ university fee accounts.
