Introducing the newest Tshimologong Digital Hub’s project: Source Code Gallery.

Hosted at Tshimologong Innovation Precinct, Source Code Gallery is a creative technology and digital content showcase and development space. The project is curated by Fak’ugesi Festival and in partnership with Digital Lab Africa and other organisations such as the Wits School of Arts, JAM Lab and Bubblegum Club.

As part of its partnership with DLA, Source Code Gallery is showcasing two winners of our second edition (2017/2018): Feben Elias, who won the Animation category with her project “DIMBIT”, and Naomi Van Niekerk, from the winning duo formed with Arnaud Van Vliet, awarded for their Virtual Reality project “II Worlds”. They will both be featured in Source Code Gallery’s first exhibition about African Women Animators, which aims to spotlight the work of female animators in an African industry “in short supply of lead women”, according to Dr Tegan Bristow, Fak’ugesi African Digital Innovation Festival Director.

The exhibition starts on the 5th of March with a Daily Animation Cinema program. Check out the rest of the exhibition program on Source Code Gallery’s website.
