VANSA collects, compiles and shares up to the minute opportunities, including employment, funding and other open calls, from the arts sector in South Africa, Africa, and the rest of the world.

The ARTRIGHT project provides the visual arts community of South Africa with a free resource of business, and educational tools, documents, information and advice. The objective is for people who work in and around the visual arts industry to do better business, more often.


One of the key motivations behind the establishment of VANSA was for the organisation to act as a voice for the sector, consulting with people working in the visual arts on the big issues that affect them, and lobbying government and the corporate sector on how they might help.

The Art Map website gives an overview of a wide cross-section of key organisations and institutions including museums, galleries, alternative art spaces, magazines, events, development organisations and tertiary institutions.
