Theme: The Sustain(ability) of Africa 

*Applying artists must ensure that all submissions are connected to the Theme: The “Sustain(ability) of Africa”. The Theme should be interpreted in light of the following guidance:

  • “The Sustain(ability) of Africa” emphasises the role that human beings have played in causing, and the role that we must play in solving, the many issues that are challenging Africa’s sustainability. 

  • It is clear that if Africa is to survive and continue to thrive, we must illuminate our problems and begin to work together towards solving them.

  • Submissions should link to the theme through the eyes of the creating artist. Artists will be expected to justify how their submission(s) does this.
