Are you ready to #PressPlay? This year, UJ Arts & Culture promises an exciting line-up of programmes offered to students from across the University at no cost. UJ Arts & Culture strives to reimagine the future through innovation and technology-led solutions for the creative sector and continues to harness these to engage the youth in its programmes. This year, the #PressPlay campaign is rooted in the power of the arts. It offers an environment where, as Aristotle puts it, ‘the inward significance of things is represented not their outward appearance’. The practice of the arts, or play as we call it, has additional mental, health and social benefits and has been proven to boost confidence, critical thinking and problem solving.

The UJ Art Academy is now open for registration for auditions. Opportunities include UJ Choir, classes and workshops in dance, poetry and drama or sign-up to merely immerse yourself in the breadth of the arts by attending a range of concerts, productions, film screenings and exhibitions. Click here to register

In addition to in-person opportunities (COVID-permitting), UJ Arts & Culture’s 2022 #PressPlay programme will draw on innovative methods developed during the pandemic to facilitate an immersive digital experience taking on the form of interactive social-networking games and social media challenges. Join the UJ Arts Academy to learn more about and experience the arts!
