Opportunity Description

Are you interested in themes of sustainability and how they intersect with the arts? The Goethe Institut South Africa and Mail & Guardian Friday are calling for abstracts!

We are looking to commission ten articles by writers who have not been published in the Mail & Guardian Friday before, but have an existing portfolio of published or unpublished writing. The chosen abstracts will be further developed together with the arts editor and then published in the Mail & Guardian Friday, and paid for by the Goethe-Institut.

Sustainability is to be understood in a broad sense: it can be connected to ecological and environmental sustainability, but also to a more creative or even economic understanding of the term — as long as it has a clear connection to the arts.

How to Apply

If this sounds like something up your alley, please send an email titled, ‘Sustainability and the arts’, with a 250-word abstract and links to your portfolio to kwaneles@mg.co.za. Emails are to be sent no later than 1 June 2021.
