Durban’s KZNSA Gallery will convene a forum to discuss the role of South African Social Art and its significance after 20 years of democracy in a day-long seminar to be held at the Gallery on March 15.

The objective is to engage in the context and content of contemporary Social Art in 2014 and, through case studies, explore the possibility of a working concept going forward. This concept will inform the KZNSA’s National Lottery Distribution Trust Funded exhibition, art education and outreach projects for the 2014/15 season. The KZNSA Gallery is grateful for support from the NLDTF for the 2014/15 year.

The seminar will bring together six relevant art experts who will present case studies as their best examples of contemporary social art. The seminar will be open to the public and the afternoon plenary session will allow for audience engagement with the panel.

Towards a working concept of Socially Engaged Art in 2014 takes place at the KZNSA Gallery on March 15 from 09h00 to 16h00. For more information, contact the KZNSA on 031 277 1705 or visit The KZNSA is situated‎ at 166 Bulwer Road, Glenwood, Durban:
