RMB TAF Talks: Threaded Vision with Craig Jacobs, Fashion Activist & Sharlene Khan, Curator
Join us for Craig Jacobs (Founder of Fundudzi) in conversation with Sharlene Khan (Artist, Curator & Educator)
Many know Craig Jacobs for his activism, as the founder of Africa’s leading sustainability brand, Fundudzi by Craig Jacobs.Others, for his tongue in cheek ability to tease – and sometimes torture – Mzansi’s A Listers, with the tap of his writer’s keypad. And while some might feel that he dabbles in two competing spheres, for this warrior by day, wordsmith by night, sustainability is more than aspiring to live a net zero life. It is about forging a new path where you can solar power your future without giving up the creature comforts that bring joy.
Sharlene Khan is a South African visual artist whose multi-media works focus on the socio-political realities of a post-apartheid society and the intersectionality of race-gender-class-ethnicity. She is co-convenor of the annual African Feminisms (Afems) Conference and runs the Art on our Mind Research Project. She holds a PhD (Arts) from Goldsmiths and is currently Associate Professor at the Department of Fine Arts, Wits School of the Arts.
