Calling all creatives

(artists, presenters/curators, festival directors, funders, producers, agents/managers, academics)

from across the African continent & beyond!

The Pan-African Creative Exchange is back!

We're excited to announce that delegate registration for #PACE2023 is officially open.

Join us for a dynamic and engaging event where you'll have the opportunity to connect with other like-minded arts practitioners from across the globe, share your work, and gain valuable insights from industry leaders.

PACE aims to transcend cultural, social, historical, geographical, and disciplinary boundaries by increasing the global reach of Africa’s contemporary (performing) arts industry and contributing to the continent’s development of future work. PACE partners with other platforms, festivals, and artists to widen the reach of African & African-diasporic cultural products. By facilitating connections across diverse contexts & artistic exchanges, PACE challenges the status quo of the discourse around African/diaspora artistic work & promotes a more equitable representation of creative expression on the global stage.

The PACE Showcase takes place in conjunction with the Vrystaat Arts Festival in Bloemfontein, South Africa, and convenes in the days before the festival. Consider staying in Bloemfontein longer and catch the festival from 11-15 July as well.
