Art on our Mind is a NRF Thutuka funded research project that focuses on South African women-of-colour creatives, initated by Dr Sharlene Khan, visual artist and Associate Professor at the Visual Arts department at the Wits School of Arts. The research team is made up of under- and postgraduate student volunteers from the art department. 

OUR OBJECTIVE is to generate a public archive of primary information on South African women-of-colour creatives by staging creative dialogues and panel discussions.

INVITED GUESTS are presented with questions designed to excavate new insights into their creative process and professional practice.

OUR TEAM gathers information through research of documentation and existing resources.

Art on our Mind aims to elevate the status and stature of South African women-of-colour creatives, and through them, inspire a new generation.
