The launch of the Live Art Network Africa (LANA) is scheduled to take place from 17 – 20 February 2018 at the University of Cape Town’s Hiddingh Campus. The three days of LANA will be divided into a symposium comprising conference sessions, open to the public, where local and international speakers will present papers, as well as networking sessions where invited delegates will discuss the vision for the Network, and how this can be taken forward. The symposium is open to all but the networking sessions are by invitation only. The programme can be downloaded in the full story.
The Institute for Creative Arts (ICA) at the University of Cape Town (UCT) invites applications for two curatorial fellowships in live art. The curatorial fellowship entails research, dialogue with artists, exploring funding possibilities, an exploration of installation spaces and the acquisition of works leading towards staging a series of live art events in and around the city.
In existence since 2012, the Institute for Creative Arts’ (ICA) Live Art Festival will to take place again from 30 August to 16 September 2018. Artthrob called the 2017 Festival “a refreshing approach to the local art scene – showcasing 34 sophisticated and political works free of charge.” While Elle described it as one that “establishes itself as pioneer in the region, blurring the fields of fine art, dance, theatre, music and literature to form a unique platform for cutting-edge interdisciplinary art.”

This difficult decision was taken in the wake of ongoing protests, and the Institute for Creative Arts (ICA) tenders sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused.
