The Executive Committee of ASSITEJ invites contributions for the Fundraising Art Auction to be held during the Congress in Cape Town, South Africa.

This auction is to raise money for the Next Generation Program, our professional development program for young and emerging artists.


We are calling out to all members of ASSITEJ (and their artist friends) to donate artworks for this event! We are now accepting contributions for the auction and ask you to send us information about an object you would like to offer along with a short story 300 word (max) about the item and its significance – whether funny or profound. Please send a photo/image/ story to and look out for the ASSITEJ Auction event page which will list all the objects and include story ‘teasers’… full stories to be announced on the evening!

We are seeking:

  • works on paper,
  • small sculptural pieces
  • works on video (or screen based works).

It is important to keep in mind that bidders in the auction are likely to need to take the works home by plane.   So we ask that the works be unframed (in the case of paper works) small in scale (sculptural) or on a data stick (screen based works).

There will be facilities for mounting and showing these works during the auction itself.
