The purpose of the Vampyre Academy is  to support the larger Vampyre Community by means of gathering all relevant information on the vampyric condition, culture and subculture in all its forms by presenting it in a manner which can be used to educate.


The focus of our educational efforts rests primarily on improving the external perception of the VC – which, sad to say, is largely brought down by the efforts of religious fundamentalist activists and those working against the Constitutionally guaranteed rights to privacy, anonymity, and of freedom of association, belief and expression in various countries.

The Vamp(i)yre subculture tends to be the target of those who disseminate and employ misinformation and disinformation about Vampyres and the VC, exaggeration, mis-association, stereotyping, outright lies, and manufactured “news” – all of which serves as propaganda to perpetuate suspicion, fear and hostility towards the Vampyre Community.

Ignorance on the part of those outside the VC, the people who don’t know what Vampyres are, or what the Vampyre culture is about, and who are duped by propaganda and disinformation – is the biggest obstacle faced by this sub-culture today.

As part of our vision, the Vampyre Academy initiated the following projects:

The South African Vampyre Culture Center

SAVCC small

This resource was founded as a subsidiary website of the Vampyre Academy in order to be an open and public reference to South African Vampyre culture, and features numerous lexicons of names, terms and jargon used within this community, and a comprehensive breakdown of the basics of Vampyre nature, culture, and history.

The Vampyre History Project


One of our oldest projects is a broad chronology of Vampyre and Vampyre-related events in history, collected from a variety of sources in real life and via net-trawls online in order to compile as complete a reference guide as possible and to present it for general public use. The Vampyre History Project is, without argument, the most complete and detailed free-access publicly visible Vampyre history on the Web! (We know – we’ve looked.) Once hosted as a standalone web resource, “The Vampyre Community History Project” is now hosted on the SA Vampyre Academy’s own website.
