Following huge success in 2014, Cascade ZA is back for a second instalment this September as part of the British Council’s Connect ZA programme. If you missed it the first time, then this is your opportunity to take part!
onedotzero are recruiting outstanding recent graduates and creatives who are in search of their next challenge. You’ll be encouraged to work outside of your comfort zone whilst learning new skills, meeting new people and expanding your network.
Free to enter and attend
Early deadline: 31 july 2015
For full details download the application pack here
Visual artists, creative coders, fashion designers, filmmakers, architects, performers, technologists, animators, illustrators and musicians are all welcome to apply but we’re not hung up on labels so don’t worry if your practice isn’t listed.
Working in multidisciplinary teams to tackle the brief, you will pool your collective talents, insights and specialism secrets to ultimately champion one stand-out idea. The week will feature workshops and inspiration sessions led by onedotzero and creative mentors, who will also be on hand to share their expertise and give each team advice and support.
At the end of the week all projects will be displayed in a public event as part of:
Fak’ugesi African Digital Innovation Festival and
British Council Connect ZA Innovation Month
So this is a fantastic platform to showcase your work and build networks within the Johannesburg arts and technology scene, local creative industries and beyond.

What last year’s participants say:
“Thank you so much for an amazing experience. I learnt a lot and am very happy to have been a part of the workshop. The entire experience wouldn’t have been possible without you guys!”
Chrisantha Chetty, Fine Art student, cascade_za 2014
“It’s made me much less of an ignorant person. I’ve learnt so much, I’ve learnt that collaborating really changes the world. I’ve learnt that sometimes you just have to let things go and listen to what other people have to say about it and then eventually you all group together and have one central idea…I feel like after this I’m a much better artist, I understand interaction better and also the visual effects of things, how to visualise an artist’s idea and make it interactive.”
Lala Crafford, Interactive Digital Media student, cascade_za 2014
“It expanded the vocabulary of my practice in terms of how I think of my work and how I engage with different people.”
Sandile Redebe, public artist, cascade_za 2014
