African Digital Art Heritage & Technology Fak'ugesi Arcade Partner
Tshimologong Digital Innovation Precinct founded by Wits University launched at the end of 2016 to create world leading African digital entrepreneurs. It is based in Braamfontein and is the catalyst to a vibrant tech ecosystem inspiring emerging talent, digital innovation and the commercialisation of research through entrepreneurship and skills development. Wholly owned by Wits University, Tshimologong is a Level 1 BBB-EE contributor and an accredited MICT-Seta service provider in ICT.

Driven by common goals, including the desire to combine technology, innovation and creative content, Tshimologong and the French Embassy in South Africa have joined forces to create a Digital Content Hub (DCH) - and integrate and sustain the existing Digital Lab Africa Programme – the first support programming for the production of digital content across sub-Saharan Africa initiated in 2016 by the French Embassy in South Africa. The DCH is the first project from cultural industries in Africa to have obtained funding from the Agence française de développement (AFD) since the extension of their mandate to these sectors.
