MORE ON THE CURATED PROGRAMME

The curated programme for ART WEEK JOBURG 2019 will have a strong focus on practitioners within the contemporary arts, with the aim of instigating conversations between the public and the artists themselves. ART WEEK is positioned to create a platform for artists and curators, including those who are not affiliated to galleries and institutions. 

Project ideas and proposals should fall strictly within the contemporary arts field and be accessible to the public.

ART WEEK encourages applicants to work together and present fully-formed ideas and events. 


Projects should, in some way, address some of the following aims and objectives:

  • Provide an unintimidating and accessible engagement with, and participation in, the contemporary arts sector in South Africa. 

  • Information sharing and guidelines to professional practice within the contemporary arts environment.

  • Create platforms for emerging and established artists, artist-run collectives and unrepresented artists to engage directly with the public. Shaping and maintaining artist collectives. 

  • Offering art practitioners experience in planning and managing self-initiated projects.  

  • Utilise resources available in the city such as institutions, venues, organisations and public spaces.

Please Note: 

  • Participants are encouraged to source their own funding. 

  • ART WEEK endeavours to work in collaboration with participants and aims to assist in making  projects happen where possible. 

  • Both new and existing/already establish projects will be considered.
