Beyond Borders is a four-part public webinar series where creative practitioners, scholars and activists reflect on and project towards an even more networked, mobile, supported and supporting Southern African arts sector. It is produced and co-conceptualized by The National Arts Festival in association with the Johannesburg office of Pro Helvetia, the Swiss Arts Council. The webinar series is convened in the context of the conclusion of the more than decade-long collaboration between Pro Helvetia Johannesburg and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation, enabling mobility, exchange and collaboration among arts practitioners and organisations in the Southern African region.
