A robust range of arts platforms are offered on all four UJ campuses for students, staff, alumni and the general public to experience and engage with emerging and established Pan-African and international artists drawn from the full spectrum of the arts.
In addition to UJ Arts & Culture, FADA (www.uj.ac.za/fada) offers programmes in eight creative disciplines, in Art, Design and Architecture, as well as playing home to the NRF SARChI Chair in South African Art & Visual Culture, and the Visual Identities in Art & Design Research Centre. The Faculty has a strong focus on sustainability and relevance, and engages actively with the dynamism, creativity and diversity of Johannesburg in imagining new approaches to art and design education.
UJ Faculty of Art, Design and Architecture (FADA)
FADA is on the University’s Bunting Campus in Auckland Park: FADA houses all the creative disciplines under one roof and with this we maintain a strong focus on sustainability and relevance, and engage actively with the dynamism, creativity and diversity of Johannesburg and the rest of the world. With the eight creative disciplines at FADA, Architecture, Interior Design, Industrial Design, Multimedia Design, Fashion Design, Graphic Design, Visual Art and Jewellery Design, we expand each of these fields beyond their traditional boundaries through internal and external collaborations.
Business and Arts South Africa (BASA)
Based in Melville: BASA was founded in 1997 as a joint initiative between government and the private sector, as part of a strategy to secure greater involvement in the arts from businesses operating in South Africa. Established as a Section 21 company, BASA is constituted in terms of the Companies Act, and is registered as a public benefit organisation. Its delisting as a Schedule 3 entity has seen Business and Arts South Africa NPC register for VAT. BASA is accountable to its stakeholders – the government, BASA members and the creative sector.
Based in Madibeng: POPArt is a Johannesburg-based independent production company and performing arts centre specialising in the Live Arts. P.O.P Art stands for People of Performing Art, and that’s exactly what they are about: providing a necessary support structure for emerging and established performing artists to realise new work in a sustainable and healthy way.
The company aims to nurture, develop, produce and present art that makes a difference, and to consistently encourage artists to consider and realise their impact in society. Their artistic vision is guided by their love for Storytelling and its ability to expand empathy and awareness amongst audiences, particularly when it comes to key social issues. They believe in universally inclusive programming, and pay special cognisance to underrepresented communities and stories.
The Market Theatre Laboratory
Based in Newtown: The Market Theatre Laboratory is a unit within the Market Theatre Foundation, considered the educational arm of the Foundation. Founded by Barney Simon and Dr John Kani in 1988, the Market Theatre Laboratory trains actors and theatre makers through its full-time and part-time programmes.
It has trained exceptional performers and theatre-makers including Olive Schreiner Award winner Phillip Dikotla, five Standard Bank Young Artist of the Year winners, Billy Langa and Mahlatsi Mokgonyana (2022), Monageng Motshabi (2016), Prince Lamla (2013) and Mncedisi Shabangu (2014), and SAFTA award winners Harriet Manamela, Warren Masemola and Lindiwe Ndlovu.
Deeply embedded in the ethos of the Laboratory is its commitment to providing opportunities to talented youth from disadvantaged backgrounds who would not otherwise be able to pursue their passion for the arts.
