For the inaugural exchange, over 30 productions and presentations were curated and selected from countries such as Egypt, Namibia, Nigeria, Ghana, Uganda, Rwanda, Senegal, South Africa and Zimbabwe (amongst others).
With the theme of mobility in, with and from Africa, we also travelled from Lagos to Johannesburg with a collection of specific works from these two cities highlighted in our curated programme.
PACE+ was held in July at
the Vrystaat Art Festival is a unique platform held in the interim years between the Pan-African Creative Exchange (PACE), to help artists reflect on and further develop their work showcased at PACE.
In 2019 we are hosting the first PACE+ Dramaturgical Laboratory led by Dr ‘Funmi Adewole. The PACE 2018 alumni are invited to participate in this inaugural lab. PACE+ provides talented and diverse artists with the opportunity to present innovative new work to arts professionals on a rare platform for global art professionals to see high-quality work by African artists.
