About the ICA

The Institute for Creative Arts (ICA), formerly the Gordon Institute for Performing and Creative Arts (GIPCA), was launched on 5 April 2016.  The ICA is an interdisciplinary institute in the University of Cape Town’s Humanities Faculty.

ICA facilitates new collaborative research projects, particularly in the Creative and Performing Arts.

Interdisciplinarity, Live Art and Public Spheres are key themes of the Institute, and projects are imbued with innovation, collaboration and a dialogue with urbanism and community.
