Anthea is an artist, a teacher, a play facilitator, a public speaker, a life long learner and a bad singer who has started an experimental choir. Anthea wears many hats, but she is an expert in creativity, adaptability and playfulness. Her main passion lies in designing informal social learning experiences, environments and adventures, where people can connect, create and play. In 2008 she completed her Masters at Wits with a focus on play and performance in public space. 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. She has travelled widely as an artist and play facilitator. In May 2015 she participated in the Johannesburg Pavilion residency at the 56th Venice Biennale. In April 2017 Anthea was the keynote speaker for CounterPlay festival in Denmark and more recently Anthea was a resident artist and researcher at The Capital of Children as part of the LEGO Foundation in Billund, Denmark.
