Become a Javett-UP member

We are delighted to announce the introduction of three Javett-UP membership packages that offer optimal, tailor-made benefits, guaranteeing members enjoy premium access to Javett-UP events, functions and facilities.

The membership packages were introduced in September.

Says Dr Samuel Isaacs, interim chief executive officer the Javett Art Centre at the University of Pretoria (Javett-UP): “We have worked hard to offer members the very best of Javett-UP, bringing amazing value to each membership option and giving great benefits to people and corporate entities who choose to become members and join the Javett-UP family.”

The three membership packages are:

Jacaranda Purple that’s designed for individuals who want “in” on openings, special events and workshops; exclusive member discounts; free access to the art centre for a year; and great discounts on selected items in the Javett-UP gift store.

Silver Bridge that offers all the benefits of the Jacaranda Purple package, but is designed for groups and families, giving additional benefits to include more people and greater savings.

Gold of Africa that’s tailor-made for corporates, families and groups whose members are art lovers offers all the benefits of the Jacaranda Purple and Silver Bridge packages, as well as significant discounts on Javett-UP venue hire and huge discounts on workshops and guided tours.

The membership packages offer excellent value for money, with benefits and discounts that more than offset modest membership fees.

The Jacaranda Purple package costs R350 per annum. The Silver Bridge package costs R2,200 per annum, and the Gold of Africa membership package costs R5,000 per annum.

Importantly, when you or your business takes up membership of Javett-UP, you will be aligning yourself and your company with the Afro-optimism that lives at the heart of Javett-UP’s business, and you will be contributing to conserving and making publicly available the art of Africa for the world to enjoy.

You will become an important role player in maintaining and growing the creative economy of South Africa. This means more creativity, more ideas, and more impact from creative and artistic people. That’s something we can all get behind!

For more enquiries please email your name, contact number and the package that you are interested in and someone will get back to you or visit

We look forward to welcoming you to the family.
