Women photographers document #SACOConf2017

An all-women team of photographers – all graduates of the Market Photo Workshop – will be documenting #SACOConf2017 this week.

The South African Cultural Observatory’s (SACO) National Conference at the Turbine Hall on Johannesburg on Wednesday and Thursday seeks to explore the interface between the creative economy and development across developed and emerging economies. The SACO and the Market Theatre Foundation have collaborated to deliver some of the elements of the conference including: photography, performance, and a theatre evening on 24 May featuring Can Themba’s legendary, ‘The Suit’ and Kgafela oa Magogodi’s satirical play ‘Chilahaebolae’.

Established by DAC in 2014, the SACO is a socio-economic think tank focused specifically on analysing the arts, culture and heritage sectors and the creative and cultural industries, hosted by Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University, in partnership with the universities of Rhodes and Fort Hare.
