All are welcome to attend the Black Joy and Self Care Symposium on Saturday 17 September 2022. Andrea Walls, founder of The Museum of Black Joy, writes, “To move from trauma to triumph is intentional work.” The Black Joy and Self Care Symposium promises a joyful agenda of idea sharing, games, poetry, and song. Speak JOY to power.

The Women's Mobile Museum in partnership with the University of Johannesburg, Graduate School of Architecture (GSA), Visual Identities in Art and Design (VIAD), The Museum of Black Joy, and TILT Institute for the Contemporary Image present the Black Joy and Self Care Symposium and exhibition at the UJ Soweto campus. The exhibition will be on view from 9 September – 2 October, 2022.

The Women’s Mobile Museum is conceived by Zanele Muholi and created with Lori Waselchuk and TILT Institute for the Contemporary Image. The artists of the Women’s Mobile Museum envision a decolonized art museum that welcomes all people.
