While the Bag Factory Board guides its organisational policy, the organisation’s programming is essentially a democratic and steered by the artists themselves along with industry professionals via a voluntary organising committee, which develops and vets our ongoing programmes. This includes all applications for exhibitions, residency opportunities and partnerships. The committee’s priority, at all times, is to maintain a stance of impartiality, operating in the best interests of the organisation as a whole.
The 2017 Programme committee comprises Director Thuli Mlambo – James , artists David Koloane, Benon Lutaaya, Tshepo Mosopa, Frances Goodman, Bev Butkow and external specialists Mark Edwards and Makgati Molebatsi. The Committee meets every 6-8 weeks with the intention of selecting only the best and most deserving applications for our various projects.
