Internationally known DJ, NV Funk, is gearing up to launch his Youth Creative Hub at the Jolly Carp Centre in Retreat.
Tu Creative was founded in August 2020 by Nathan van Dalen, aka NV Funk.
The project focuses on creative development in Cape Town’s entertainment industry.
Nathan says he founded the organisation after realizing the city lacks such a facility.
NV Funk is known for his kwaai drummer skills while wrecking the decks at the same time.
“Our mission at Tu Creative is to work alongside our local communities, schools, non-profit organizations and local businesses to empower our youth to reach their full potential through arts and culture,” he says.
“We aim to do this through the use of resources that are accessible to them.”
Nathan said the objectives to enrich the youth include offering and exposing them a range of subjects such as creative and youth development, and teaching them to serve the community through the creative arts.

“I always had the desire to invest in the youth and what better way to start than to invest in my own community,” says Nathan.
“We are aiming to grow further from here and spread more awareness on the Cape Flats.
“I believe a youth given opportunities to enrich themselves, is a step closer to changing the world.”
The hub offers Creative Development, Creative Arts, DJ School, Music, Fashion & Design and Music Production.
