CCAA Thursday Afternoon Research Seminar Series
The Centre for the Creative Arts of Africa and the Wits Art Museum, in association with interested staff from the Wits School of Arts, are launching a seminar series.
The purpose is to air the research being done around the creative arts of Africa (with an intention of interrogating what this is) in the Centre, in the Wits Art Museum, the Wits School of Arts and in related disciplines in other Faculties at Wits and beyond. We encourage participation of academics and researchers from other institutions in Gauteng and will be inviting high-profile academics to deliver papers.
We propose to open the series with seminar presentations from four researchers in the Centre: Anitra Nettleton, Paul Davis, Pamela Phatsimo Sunstrum, and Laura de Becker from WAM, explaining some aspects of their work that will invite participation from others in the University community and beyond.
Some of the seminars will relate to research for exhibitions that are mounted at WAM, and the curators will explain their vision in a walkabout context.
Interested parties should contact Anitra Nettleton to submit a proposal for a seminar slot. Information on the seminar series will be posted on the Centre’s website http://www.wits.ac.za/CCAA .
Seminars will be held weekly in Wits term-time on Thursday evenings from 5.15 to 6.30 pm.
