About Building Beyond

Building Beyond is a unique learning structure that facilitates artists coming together with peers to reflect on their practice, activate it within their local context, and collectively assemble ideas and universalities from across the continent.

The program aims to engage with the built environment as an interpretive and alterable world.

  • Supporting Community Engagement: Building Beyond supports practices that engage with the relational worlds of communities and public space, fostering conversations on resilience, humanity, and creativity in urban environments.
  • Program Structure: The programme brings together 12 experienced creatives with approximately 7–15 years of relevant professional experience. Supported by four mentors, the cohort engages in peer group sessions, guest speaker sessions, and two in-person Lab Weeks—one in an African country and one in the Netherlands.
  • Group Projects: Participants work on two group projects during the programme—a public-facing event opportunity and a collective publication.
