We spoke to Writers On Main founder, Obakeng Makhutle about what we can expect when the shows return on Saturday 21 February.
1. What is Writers On Main, where and how often does it take place? How long has it been running?
Writers On Main is a collaborative space where artists meet to share their artworks, i.e Poems, Fine Art & Multimedia to mention a few. Any artist is welcome to share their artwork. We host sessions every 3rd Saturday of every month, at Rubixcube Art Gallery, at the Maboneng Precinct at Arts On Main. We have been doing this for two – three years now.
2. What has been your highlight of the Writers On Main series?
Having two different artists (from different backgrounds) doing different kinds of artworks coming together to collaborate for “writers on main collaborations” and being successful in that field has been our biggest highlight.
3. What sets Writers On Main apart from other poetry shows?
Hahaha, promoting collaboration amongst artists is our first priority and that’s what makes us unique.
4. What can we look forward to this year?
This year, expect more and more collaboration.
5. What would you like Writers On Main to be known for?
Innovation and it’s ability to break boundaries amongst different art forms.
Check out some of the highlights from last year.
