1-54 Forum London

3 - 6 October 2019

Transforming Education Systems from Within and Developing New Infrastructures

In recent years, individual teachers, alumni and students have begun taking steps to update curricula and reshape the way art is taught in African universities to better serve young artists. Meanwhile new private structures incorporating pedagogical functions are emerging. Ibrahim Mahama (Artist and Founder of The Savannah Centre for Contemporary Art, Ghana) and Nontobeko Ntombela (Curator) discuss their experiences of transforming education systems in Ghana and South Africa respectively with Zoé Whitley (Senior Curator, Hayward Gallery).
