Creatives in Conversation offer platforms for creatives to be introduced to the content that the upcoming Conference Programme will explore (16 & 17 March). Interdisciplinarity is normally framed within an academic framework and the free series will start unpacking the fusion of academic disciplines that have evolved into this movement. #creativeintersections aims to extend the scope of this adoptive thinking approach outside of academic confines and to stimulate thought around how interdisciplinary practice finds its way into the local environment, identifiable through working spaces, individuals and organisation. Furthermore, it also aims to explore the potential this kind of thinking holds for the creative industries.
Creative Spaces: Abstract digital sculptor, designer and electrical engineer, Dr Michaella Janse van Vuuren, and anthropologist, curator, communications guru, and art entrepreneur, Julie Taylor, talk to academic and performing arts expert, Mwenya Kabwe, about how to break down barriers between physical spaces and the virtual world as they take a journey exploring the intersection between diverse ideas, concepts and disciplines. This final pre-conference session is scheduled to take place on 9 March and will also be hosted on the University of Johannesburg’s Bunting Road Campus at the FADA Gallery promptly at 18:00. This conversation will be guided by Mwenya Kabwe.
