The exhibition aims to bring together a collection of 100 artworks, which re-imagines the future of Stellenbosch University and higher education in Africa. An open call is made for artists to submit proposals for artworks that engage with ideas around the future of higher education in the next 100 years (2018 – 2118). This is a forward-looking exhibition. In short, we are looking for compelling, innovative and thought-provoking works that will serve as catalysts for debate and engagement on the future of the university.
