The V&A Waterfront has made a long term commitment to help to support and drive the arts industry in the city, province and country. Through our 16 Voices initiative, a part of the 100 Beautiful Things project, we are helping to amplify the work of 16 emerging artists by bringing their voices to our platforms. Aptly launching on the 16th of June 2020, 16 Voices is a space for emerging young South African creators who are making strides in their respective disciplines within the arts realm. From painters and illustrators to musicians and filmmakers, during this Youth Month we will highlight 16 young artists by giving them a platform to showcase their cutting-edge creations. If you are an artist or know of an outstanding artist under 35 years old creating impactful work that serves as a reflection of what it means to be young in 2020, share a link to your/their work below to be heard. Submissions close on 29 June 2020 at 23h59.
