Ciclope Africa shortlist finalists announced

After much anticipation, and 10 days of deliberation, the Ciclope Africa shortlist finalists have been announced.  

The Executive and Grand jury members, comprising of well-known local and international producers and creatives, had their work cut out for them as the very first African edition of the acclaimed international festival of craft, Ciclope, received over 150 entries across the board.

The shortlist finalists are a collection of the three best-ranked entries in each category based on scores provided by the jury members. 

The festival, which focuses on the art of execution, rather than the ‘big idea’, will be announcing the overall winners in each category on 10 April 2018 at the Zeitz MOCAA Museum of Contemporary Art in Cape Town.

For the full programme, which comprises of well-respected speakers from Africa and abroad, please follow this link.
