A blend of the physical and the virtual is the way of the post-pandemic art world, and it’s likely to stay that way for some time. As we continue to find our feet in this hybrid creative landscape, Creative Feel  remains committed to updating our list of virtual events (launched in the period following South Africa’s first hard lockdown in 2020) so that you can continue supporting and uplifting South Africa’s creative sector.

We urge our readers, both local and international, to support these live streams, digital events, virtual exhibitions and physical events to help keep South Africa’s arts scene alive

Have an event you’d like to see on our Virtual Events page? Send it through to info@creativefeel.co.za for consideration by our editorial team.

Due to the impact of COVID-19, students come into the studio to collect materials & their project brief, and work from home via Zoom and WhatsApp. Many parents are out of work so any help or assistance, however small, would be appreciated & will go towards helping students with data & transport costs.
