The 2009 – 2012 Donald Gordon Creative Arts Awards provided liberating funding to the imaginative projects of UCT staff in partnership with other academics and/or externally situated artists without limitations in discipline. These awards supported new projects that engaged with ideas of interdisciplinarity and innovation across academic units and communities. The year-long projects required collaboration in a theorised, critical process of discovery, preferably with creative artists in any discipline.
