Beautifull Life

bree street, cape town

The Beautifull Life building in Bree Street, right in the heart of Cape Town, is not only the Youngblood foundation’s home base in the city, but also houses the Youngblood gallery. Its surroundings, comprised of the media- and film-industries as well as art schools and studios, are well-aligned to its own artistic and cultural purpose.

Beautifull Life’s 3 floors can be hired and used in combination or independently for various events, workshops, exhibitions, live shows, film screenings, corporate functions and many more medium-sized private or business occasions.

The historical building is also something of a second home for many emerging artists, being not only a unique Youngblood venue but also an art gallery. Here, artists can exhibit their work within a professional and polished environment. The building’s fluid spatial design encourages interaction, facilitating important networking opportunities. At Beautifull Life, local and international artists, musicians, composers, writers, photographers, designers, filmmakers, entrepreneurs, business agents, Youngblood members and art lovers can meet, mingle and connect.
