Voices in Colour are  looking with focus on SADC for artists who will benefit from the following project.

The context program is a workshop artists' professional development. The program facilitates a space to discuss among peers and receive critical feedback regarding ones' artistic practice. Each session engages between 12-15 artists.

Lack of familiarity with new media is a challenge among local artists, where necessary the program seeks to familiarize local artists with new media: sound, performance art and video art seeing that a number of them are still limited to painting and sculpture. The program urges artists to amalgamate their present skills with new and efficient forms of expression.

With the generous support of British Council, Culture Fund, Hivos and the Norwegian Embassy, VIC has been able to engage the following artists:
