The KZNSA is to host JetLag Inyathuko, a series of presentations by artists and creative types who often travel to interesting destinations for work or leisure, sometimes both.

Being interesting people, artists usually develop an interesting rapport with cities or other places which they find themselves in and it is through this event that these individuals will report on their travels and in a way, begin to frame their host city through their eyes and experience.

A show and tell style event taking place on February 3, presentations will include a combination of projected pictures taken during the travel supported by strong commentary from each speaker. The speakers are a diverse group, each bringing a unique perspective and style of storytelling in a 10 minute slot per speaker.

Speakers include Angela Shaw, Curator of the Venice Biennale, Venice; Menga Nhlabathi (filmmaker) – AFRIFF2015, Lagos; Paulo Menezes (Photographer) - Studio Vortex photography residency, Arles; Tiny Mungwe (Filmmaker) - Rome Film Fest., Rome, and Russel Hlongwane (Arts Administrator) - SXSW, Austin.

Over and above it all, this is a reason to get together as Durban's creative community. The event is also a rebuttal to the perception that Durban's creative scene is inactive.

JetLag Inyathuko takes place at 18h00 on February 3. The KZNSA Gallery is situated at 166 Bulwer Road, Glenwood, in Durban. More information on 031 277 1705, fax 031 201 8051 or cell 082 220 0368 or visit
