Engage with professionals from Europe and South Africa around public art and its role in audience development and alternative spaces/alternative education.

EUNIC Lab, initiated by EUNIC South Africa (European Union National Institutes for Culture), invites a number of delegates from Europe and South Africa to share and exchange best practice examples in the development of new audiences for institutions such as museums, galleries and art spaces. The lab, which runs between Wed 27 and Fri 29 May, includes workshops, visits and public sessions in Johannesburg, Soweto and Pretoria.

The workshops focus on ways to engage distanced or inaccessible communities, and look at case studies of institutions that have managed to gain diverse audiences, through innovative and economical strategies. Particular attention will be paid to education, with a focus on young people.

Join the two public sessions which will be held on Wednesday 27 May in Soweto and Thursday 28 May in Pretoria and engage with professionals on topics such as “Public art and its role in audience development” and “Alternative spaces/alternative education”.

This project is realised in partnership with VANSA (Visual Arts Network of South Africa), in the context of EuropeFest, the Month of Europe's Cultures, in collaboration with the 'Connecting Creative Markets' programme supported by Business and Arts South Africa and the British Council Connect ZA.
