We are actively recruiting leaders of the Art & Technology community for participation – both on- and offline!
We are always looking for submissions to AT.joburg: wrting, reviews, events, projects, proposals, workshop ideas, and more! Please get in contact with us if you want to be a writer for this site, organize or present at an event, or have more questions about what we do.
Any person may throw an AT.joburg affiliated event – so long as it is in line with our goals and open to the public! Event organizers in the Gauteng area should contact us for a username and password, to blog your events on this site (it’s really easy!). Or, you can email us some text about you and your event directly – whether it is an invitation or a review – and we’ll be happy to post it for you. (If you throw regular events, or enjoy writing to any capacity, we urge you to go for the former, and become a member of our blog!)
For now, our core members are (click to contact!):
