Artist Alliance: Live Art, Be Heard

"Art should be something that liberates your soul, provokes the imagination and encourages people to go further.”Keith Haring

For 30 years, the V&A Waterfront has been a strong supporter of the arts in Cape Town, celebrating the creativity and resilience of South Africa, with initiatives such Art In Public Places, Joy from Africa and Take the Stage. We celebrate and champion the richness of the talent, projects and the people that embody the creativity and resilience of South Africa.

The V&A Waterfront Artist Alliance programme was conceptualised on the belief that creatives who LIVE their ART deserve to BE HEARD. This immersive programme offers practical experience, knowledge, and skills development in six disciplines: Fine Arts (Sculpture), Videography, Music Production, Illustration, Animation and Graphic Design. With guidance from six influential industry leaders, selected incubatees will receive mentorship tailored to their discipline and expertise. Unleash your creativity, and seize the opportunity to nurture your artistic talents and join our creative neighbourhood community.
