About us


ThePalaceOfTheDogs advocates art to marginalised and under-privileged communities. Redirecting the purpose of art within our society to guide conversations that will empower the voiceless. 

We do this by practicing arts activism and supporting creatives that use their craft as a vessel for their activist views; to increase progressive conversation around identity, politics and social issues. We endeavour to be a creative resource for the youth, to both inspire and empower them, challenging the narrative that has been placed upon the inner city youth.
