Emerging Arts Activist presents- Futurespectives: 10 years from Now exhibition


The Emerging Arts Activist program, through dialogic approaches and a range of art production methods, aims to instill critical thinking skills and agency in South African youth towards a conscientising end.

This year's jam packed 3.5 day program, launched on Monday 7 July, resulted in eleven amazing handcrafted collage posters by our talented aspiring activists who hail from New Nations School (Fietas), Ennerdale Secondary School (Ennerdale) and Phefeni Secondary School (Soweto). Each poster explored the personal perspectives of the activists, and sought to position their life experiences in post-apartheid discourse by exploring themes of race, place and class and how these persist in the present. Some of the areas explored included the growing potential for future race-based conflict, educational transformation, rising crime rates and unemployment, and over-population in our cities.


Futurespectives: 10 years from Now exhibition 

Join us at the APARTHEID MUSEUM on 17 July at 18.30,
 to celebrate the creative insights of our youth and to commemorate the youth of the past who fought for South Africa's freedom.




The project would like to thank the
for their generous sponsorship and ongoing support.
