HOTTOPIC (article first published : 2005-04-11)

At the NSA Gallery’s popular forum, hottopic, on April 20, well-known art lecturer Jan Jordaan will discuss Art and Advocacy with special reference to the Art for Humanity’s “Break the Silence” HIV/AIDS portfolio.

Initiated in 2000, the “Break the Silence” portfolio is employed in a public advocacy campaign with the intention of inspiring a sense of moral ownership of the pandemic in society. This campaign has received the following awards, UN/NGO alliance award for Excellence, iEthekwini Mayors Award, Tech Natal award for research artifacts.

The presentation will focus on the design, implementation and results. Differences between art based advocacy and other forms of visual based advocacy campaigns will be discussed.

Starting at 18h30 on April 20, hottopic is an ongoing initiative by the NSA gallery to encourage discussion and debate around issues of contemporary art.
