Creatives in Conversation offer platforms for creatives to be introduced to the content that the upcoming UJ Arts & Culture Conference will explore. Interdisciplinarity is normally framed within an academic framework and the free series will start unpacking the fusion of academic disciplines that have evolved into this movement. #CreativeIntersections aims to extend the scope of this adoptive thinking approach outside of academic confines and to stimulate thought around how interdisciplinary practice finds its way into the local environment, identifiable through working spaces, individuals and organisation. Furthermore, it also aims to explore the potential this kind of thinking holds for the creative industries.

The Multi- hyphenator: In this segment entrepreneur, philanthropist, social commentator and community builder, Shaka Sisulu and multidisciplinary artist, designer and dot-connector Atang Tshikare, will dissect the intersection of multi spheres of practice and explore how this can be applied as a physical framework for an alternative way of thinking and approaching creative collaborations, using their surrounding local communities as a resource and muse. The talk will be hosted from 18:00 at the Con Cowan Theatre on the Bunting Road Campus on the 2nd March 2016. This conversation will be guided by brand strategist Anthea Poulos.
