Hosting the finest contemporary art from Africa for the world. A showcase for large-scale contemporary art exhibitions, the Stellenbosch Triennale is a non-commercial, multidisciplinary art platform hosting a range of artists from Africa and the diaspora. “African creatives confront us with what is possible for a renewal to happen utilising art as a lens, a course correction, a stimulus around curiosity and imagination. Through the Stellenbosch Triennale, we bring work from the continent to the southernmost tip as an intersection of time – where the past, present and future are in dialogue.” – Khanyisile Mbongwa, Chief Curator
PechaKucha is the Japanese term for the sound of “chit chat” and so PechaKucha Nights are informal and fun gatherings where people from all walks of life get together and share their ideas, works, thoughts and experiences. The 20×20 presentation format of PechaKucha involves 20 images, each displayed for 20 seconds, resulting in short, visually driven presentations. Images advance automatically and presenters must therefore be succinct. Prepare to be inspired, challenged and educated as PechaKucha speakers share their passions, creativity and achievements – all in less than seven minutes!
