Artist Acceleration and Exposure Programme (A3E) is 10and5’s new initiative which aims to upskill emerging artists across South Africa. We are giving talented artists a platform to reach new markets, and help them break into the art/gallery scene.
Art Month is a joint initiative with the Friends of Welgemeend, Lizelle and Frank Kilbourn, Marion and Jonathan Bloch, Erin and Leo Podlashuc, Strauss & Co and with the assistance of Hoërskool Jan van Riebeeck. The Welgemeend Art Month will run from 1 to 31 August and coincides with this initiative.
