Support the project • Published 20 AUGUST 2019
We are super thankful for the support from institutions and individuals for Chapter One of Hemelliggaam or The Attempt To Be Here Now - it has been a great adventure so far.
As we are still in progress with developing the contents, nearing the third and final chapter with upcoming exhibitions - we are looking for further support for the content development, publications and exhibition production costs.

Sponsorship opportunity available for upcoming exhibitions and publications.
The project is contributing to the Roadmap of the history of Astronomy in South Africa and is supported by the National Research Foundation(NRF) in this regard. The development of an ‘archive’ and an array of curated exhibitions and screenings is the result. Our Chapter One works and exhibition production has also been supported by the Consulate of Italy in Cape Town and the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation. As our first chapter has been well received and exhibited and we are continuing the work we would like to apply for additional funding for completion of additional activities.
Prints on pre-sale
A great way for collectors or companies to get involved is via purchasing of our limited edition fine art prints and videos from the project. The proceeds at this stage all goes towards more content development and production costs.
