Our History

Youngblood Arts & Culture Development, which won a BASA (Business and Arts South Africa) award, was created in January 2010. Its founder, Roger Jungblut, realized that the talented individuals making up South Africa’s burgeoning field of arts and culture need two things above all: capital and exposure. Youngblood gives them both.

Roger Jungblut is the CEO of UAL (Universal Africa Lines), a leading shipping company that has been connecting Africa’s oil and gas industry with the US and Europe for over 40 years. Through Youngblood, he committed his considerable international business expertise to the development of the arts and culture industries as well.

As an example: Youngblood Foundation arranges and finances training programmes to facilitate skills transfer. This way, many undereducated and underprivileged members of our society are given a very real chance at a sustainable future in the creative industries.

Roger Jungblut’s commitment to this cause runs very deep indeed. He has put privately owned properties – now the Youngblood Venues – as well as UAL‘s extensive international business network at Youngblood‘s service.

Today, the foundation is just as committed to its pioneering objectives. Youngblood organizes support for the arts, and for artists, via corporate-sector and private-sector sponsors, and via other companies with CSI (Corporate Social Investment) programmes, where Youngblood itself has its origins. Accordingly, all proceeds from the Youngblood venues are also donated to Youngblood Foundation.

By acknowledging arts and culture as a social foundation, we contribute
to the development of a flourishing society.
