Daring Curating: International Forum for Art and Technology in Africa
Drawing on Fak’ugesi Festival’s 2017 theme of bravery and collaboration, this forum brings together practitioners at all levels of professional experience – artists and producers – to debate issues around curating Art and Technology in Africa.
Using the model developed by the UK resource CRUMB, the forum, organised by NEoN Digital Arts Festival, Fak’ugesi Festival and Trinity Session aims to generate better understanding of the challenges faced in curating media arts in the region. This is in relation to the international conversation. The forum will consist of sessions entailing presentations, keynote talks and frank discussions and practical information exchanges.
Partners: University of Dundee, NEoN Digital Arts Festival (Dundee, Scotland), CRUMB, Wits School of Arts, The Trinity Session, ISEA 2018.
Audience: Artists and Curators working in the field of media and technology arts.
Bookings: Booking information to be released later in August.
