HISTORY OF SAFIA

SAFIA was established in 1989 as a forum for like spirited Islamic artists, who needed to unite their passion for this genre of art and find common ground for their activities.

This drive and passion called together a number of people, spearheaded by world-renowned South African artist Achmat Soni, to consider the future and growth of this most beautiful art form. As a result, many initiatives came from this and many have benefited from its initial activities.

After a hiatus of 15 years, towards the end of 2005, a renewed interest in promoting this field of creative art was shown by a group of artists and along with Achmat Soni, it resulted in the revival of the art foundation.

SAFIA’s Vision is to create and promote awareness of Islamic Arts and Crafts and preserve its legacy on a National and International level.

Its mission is to promote the beauty of our Islamic heritage, host and organize workshops, exhibitions and conferences. Nurture the individual’s creative spirit and network with like-minded individuals and associations through the sharing and exchange of ideas.

It has as one of the founding members, Achmat Soni, a world renowned artist who has over many years produced works of exquisite art and his efforts has been the direct result of many in the region taking up the beautiful challenge that Islamic art presents.
