On 12th November 2022 the project team organised the public event: 'Art and Writing Workshops Inspired by South African Modernism' as part of the Being Human Festival 2022: Breakthroughs The workshops invited members of the public to engage creatively with the work of South African modernist artist, Albert Adams. They were provided with an introduction to Adams' life and work by Dr Alice Correia who leads the Albert Adams in Context project, as well as an introduction to intersections between South African modernist art and literature  by Dr Jade Munslow Ong.


The art and writing sessions were led by award-winning creative writer, Dr Judy Kendall, and professional artist and PhD researcher, Natalie Ilsley. We are delighted to present the images and writing produced below, with the kind permission from participants in the workshops.

We would like to thank the Being Human Festival team, AHRC and British Academy for funding the event, and the team at the University of Salford Art Collection for their advice and support. All photography courtesy of Glacé Media.
