National Arts Festival 2030: Collective Collage

FUTURE FESTIVALS SOUTH AFRICA

What will the National Arts Festival be like in 2030?

Future Festivals South Africa is working with the National Arts Festival as a research partner to ask about the future of festivals in South Africa.

Artists blk banaana (Duduetsang Lamola) and Francois Knoetze have created an interactive 360 world including public contributions of imaginary spaces, places and people which could form part of the National Arts Festival ten years from now.

This interactive world acts as a portal for the further imagining of the National Arts Festival ten years from now.  We welcome new contributions towards this project in any format, for example: A photograph or scan of small collages created from home, a letter, an idea, a poem, a voice note or a sound recording.  Last day to submit is 29 August 2021.

Be free and imaginative with your contributions!
