Creative Dialogues: 11 – 13 June 2019

We are holding our first Creative Dialogues event this year, with the theme: Imagined Futures. At this three day event, we’ll have speakers from South Africa, Zimbabwe and Mozambique, primarily, sharing their thoughts on and expertise on multiple forms of ‘knowledges’. The goal of this gathering is to rethink our context and to imagine and envision Southern Africa as a creative hub and connected space, rather than a space divided by borders.

Participating institutions include the Norval Foundation, Zeitz Mocaa, HKLM, the King James Group, Stellenbosch Outdoor Sculpture Trust and the Stellenbosch Triennale among others as well as  Anima Estúdio Criativo  from Mozambique and the National gallery of Zimbabwe, Moto Republik and Dzimbanhete Arts and Culture Interactions from Zimbabwe.

Book Dash 2019

On 13 April we hosted Book Dash 2019. Book Dash is an annual event where creative people combine their powers to create children’s books in a 12 hour sprint. All of the time people give to the project is volunteered, meaning that all of value goes towards the kids. To date, Book Dash has published 117 books and distributed over 400 000 copies to children across the country.

This year the challenge was to create books for babies aged 0 – 2 years old. No mean feat! Seeing the incredible creativity and drive of everyone involved made for such an incredible day, and an incredible outcome. What a special thing to be a part of!
