Anthea_MG_4901

Anthea Moys is an artist, a teacher and a playful creativity consultant. In her capacity as all of these identities Anthea engages people in situations that ask them to break and remake the rules and find new ways to work and play together. In 2008 she completed her Masters in Fine Arts (cum laude) at the University of Witwatersrand with a focus on structured play and performance in public space. More recently she completed a course in Art Therapy and Social Activism.

Over the last ten years she has travelled widely in her capacity as an artist and workshop facilitator to Zambia, Berlin, Australia, Sweden, London, Italy, Switzerland and France. In 2011 Anthea was selected as one of Mail & Guardians Top 200 Young South Africans. In 2013 she won the Standard Bank Young Artist Award for Performance Art (inaugural) where she created her “Vs.” series, which embraced failure and reimagined winning as the act of learning itself. In May 2015 she participated in the Johannesburg Pavilion residency at the 56th Venice Biennale. In 2016, Anthea co-initiated and produced the Hey Hillbrow let’s dlala! public art parade and was a workshop facilitator for My Alex – Youth Perceptions of Place.

Whilst her background and training is in the arts, she is the last to define herself narrowly … She has been a cyclist, a boxer, a painter, a snowswimmer, an arm wrestler, a street cleaner, a porter, a rugby player, a bagpipe and soccer player, a ballroom dancer, a chess player and a singer, a karateka, an alpine horn and ice hockey player and a Swiss wrestler. She is currently learning how to dj.

Engaging in this large variety of human experiences has informed her way of working with people from all walks of life and her interdisciplinary and divergent approach to creative problem solving in her consultation practice.  Underpinning all of her work is the belief that creativity paired with the ability to ‘sit with ambiguity’ and how to work and play with others are some of the super powers that we will need to adopt in a volatile, unstable and ever-changing world. The workshops that she has developed over the years make use of these super powers, leading to better working relationships, a braver approach to experimentation and a happier, less anxious sense of being in the world.

Anthea lives, learns, works and plays in Johannesburg, South Africa.
