The Orientation Trips are aimed at exchange and cooperation between visual art professionals. The goal of this Orientation Trip is to extend international networks and contacts, and to stimulate the international dialogue between art professionals.
The group will visit South Africa (Johannesburg and Cape Town) and Zimbabwe (Harare and Bulawayo). During the trip a blog will be updated.
