Since the first Tankwa Town, our San Clan effigy project has been championed and interpreted by different artists each year, with this creating a diverse range of Clan structures in both expression and experiences through the years.
We’ve had spider Clans, robot bunnies, and this year we had a bedside lamp – but we have no idea what our 2020 Clan could look like yet. Have you got any idea? If you do, you’re welcome to submit a Clan proposal.
The outcome will definitely not be predictable and the likelihood of it being anything like other Clans past is very small, but the deadline is very real, and it’s the 31st of July, on the stroke of midnight.
For background on the history and significance of the Clan effigy, read up right here.
Shout out to the accidental artist, Lindsay Cessford, who produced the concept and design for our 2019 Clan. Well played, Lamplady – and thank you (and Mike and his whole crew) for such a surprising and endearing piece of work.
