Our Work

Our mission is to help create engaged citizens and healthy communities by inviting all visitors to discover new worlds, to wonder, to ask questions, and to imagine a better future through interactive, hands-on exhibits, programming and play.

Play Africa believes in the future of South Africa

Play Africa is a bold, exciting and ground-breaking project in post-apartheid South Africa.
In collaboration with a diverse array of partners, we seek to transform the landscape of the city of Johannesburg for children and families.

Play Africa empowers thousands of children, families and educators to:

Play Africa Create
Play Africa Discover
Play Africa Explore
Play Africa Imagine
Play Africa Innovate

Our vision is an equitable South African society that honours all children and champions every child’s right to play and discover

We need your help to provide our children with the play environments and learning tools they need and deserve.
