A Word of Art

Cape Town, 66 Albert Rd, Woodstock

A Word of Art was founded in 2009 by Ricky Lee Gordon. AWOA believes in connecting people through creative practices to help effect social change on a local, national and global scale. In addition to their exhibition space and project room, they run an international artist exchange that brings visual artists from all over the world to South Africa to share time, skills and ideas with local creatives and community members. Located beside /A SPACE, /A STUDIO provides a well stocked work environment for visiting artists as well as a multipurpose venue for artist talks, film screenings and similar activities. AWOA also facilitates ongoing arts outreach activities in the communities of Woodstock and Khayelitsha, and have completed capsule projects in Swaziland, Transkei and Gambia.
