About Us

Who we are

The Pan African Market is the brainchild of people who identified the opportunity to create something that would become uniquely and distinctly African multi-ethnic. When spoken of, African Art tends to be homogenised. In the Pan African Market, however, there is both the ingénue and the connoisseur to bring to bear the incredibly edifying exposure to the cultures of peoples from various parts of Africa.

One is able to explore three floors laden with stunning pieces, each corner leading to yet more revelation. The next step in the exploration of this artwork is to bring forth its stories to begin, not only to contextualise these art pieces but also to enhance the buyers’ knowledge of the cultures of Africa.

Being in a space Facilitated by Sis’ Vuyo is like being in a creative holding where you are shaken in ways that invite all of yourself to bear witness to what is happening. It is a place where everything you hold dear is awakened and you are dared to be courageous enough to show up in your soul essence. In this place all neglected parts of yourself show up to be integrated once more and your participation demands that you stay true to all that is calling you and all that you long to be. Whether in her diversity work or in the work she does in transformative leadership this remains the same. The space that is created will challenge you to be more of yourself. Expect to be challenged and held in the most generous ways. Expect a reckoning of spirit and soul. Expect to remember what it feels like to be whole. Expect to never forget that as you journey on… – Injairu Kulundu-Bolus from  Shedding Skins & Transgressive Learning for Social Change

Vuyo Koyana was a valued partner to me and my marketing team at Coca-Cola South Africa. We undertook a number of initiatives with her as a key facilitator. The initiativesincluded team building interventions, but the bulk of Vuyo’s work with us wascentered on diversity training and interventions. This work was in the areas of bothrace and also gender – which was a first at the Coca-Cola company. These interventions, while tough, were certainly impactful and successful and theteam benefitted thereafter from an increased  sense of awareness, transparency andsensitivity to a very tough issue facing SA businesses today. Made for a moreeffective team and enhanced delivery of results. I have no hesitation in recommending Vuyo for work such as this. She is an excellentfacilitator, insightful, sensitive and when it is required, challenging. She had an instant connection with a very diverse team of highly intelligentmarketers.  She was well liked and respected. She is also an impactful person, witha graceful presence. Don’t be mistaken, however, she is up for the challenges that present themselves inthis critical area. I would gladly work with her again.
