TED Talks are the gold standard when it comes to informative presentations, and they’re about to land on our shores thanks to TEDxJohannesburg Salon – Art for Africa, which is taking place this September.

The organisers have rounded up twelve artists, patrons and curators from this continent and abroad to speak about art in Africa. Check out the speaker’s list to see who will be talking.
