Inspiring through passion, leading through purpose

We have created a platform in Durban for Durban with opportunities and education by local and international heavy weights by bringing them together locally, where the artist can learn, network, grow, get direction, perform to and audition for a panel made up of artists, scouts, producers and directors, under one roof, locally, AND at a fraction of the cost.

Unlike other platforms offered to the South African market, Project Performer gives actors, singers and dancers a platform in Durban without having to travel overseas for the same thing, but also a chance for those who want and/or need to cultivate and make connections nationally and internationally. Other platforms take you to America, whereas Project Performer brings them to YOU, with the idea of Artist Development at the root, coupled with South African heavy weights, all under ONE roof in DURBAN, saving you an additional R50 000 or more PLUS visas, exchange rates, flights, spending money and hidden costs.

We Want To:
• Have transparency from the beginning of your journey with us
• Achieve more together and DELIVER
• Inspire aspiring and established artists, and cultivate creativity
• Work with passionate people
• Provide top coaching right here in KZN!
• Bring an international flavor to our local talent and bridge the gap between amateur and professional
