August is Women’s Month in South Africa. Those of you who’ve been reading us for some time will know that for the Creative Feel team, when it comes to spotlighting and celebrating women in the arts, it’s more of a year-round affair than a single day or month out of the year. That’s why we’ve put together this special feature, committed to showcasing the countless individuals who continue to shape the arts in urgent and exciting ways. These are the outstanding theatremakers, visual artists, musicians, curators, CEOs, writers, directors and more who we’ve had the privilege of speaking with and writing about this year so far.
