2. BUILD-UP TO THE INDRA CONGRESS PATHWAYS
HOSTED BY ARROWSA AND UKZN
IN DURBAN FROM 2ND TO THE 8TH OF JULY 2018
We have an ongoing build-up to the Indra Congress Pathways that introduces the participants and arts facilitators and organisers to each other and also shares the artworks that the participating groups are working on that they will share with each other at the congress.
Visual art facilitators
Three emerging visual artists will facilitate the arts and crafts section of the Indra Congress Pathways towards creating spectacular props and costumes for the street festival. The visual artists are Karla Nixon, Dane Knudsen (Stops) and Kathlyn Allan.
Karla 'is a Durban based artist who mainly works with paper' (see www.karlanixon.com/bio). Karla has won numerous scholarships and awards and has had a number of exhibitions in South Africa. She is a lecturer in Fine Arts and was awarded the artist residency 2017-2018 in Bremen, Germany.

Dane has had a number of exhibitions in South Africa and 'has done live art at various events. He has been an active contributor to the Durban mural and graffiti scene for over a decade. His work has various influences, from painting graffiti to figurative subject matter such as people and birds' (see https:/northcoastcourier.co.za/78449/tea-and-art-with-dane/ ).
Kathlyn Allan is a Swellendam based jeweller (see https://www.facebook.com/authoradorn/) Kathlyn 'makes jewellery that tells a story' (see @author-adorn) .
