Decolonial Futures Programme and Winter School 2020 for South African Students

Apply now to join our Decolonial Futures programme and Winter School!

Application Deadline: 7th October 2020

About the Award: Decolonial Futures is an exchange programme organised between the Sandberg Instituut, the Rietveld Academie and Framer Framed in Amsterdam and Funda Community College in Soweto, South Africa. The programme was inspired by the desire to work collectively towards a decolonial future in which an equal exchange of knowledges and perspectives from students working across the disciplines of art and design could be established. Each term participants will collaborate in a specific project informed by some of the current efforts undertaken by counter-hegemonic movements and initiatives around the world, departing from the participants’ lived experiences.

  • You do not need to have a photographic background, but notions will be beneficent.
