Survival Guide 2017 Released

Your Survival Guide is here! Imigaqo yokuphilo seyifikile! Jou oorlewingsgids is hier!


And, as you can see above and might’ve guessed, it now comes in not one, not two, but three flavours: English, isiXhosa and Afrikaans. Because why? Because we live in eMzantsi, and because radical inclusion means nothing if our culture isn’t understandable and accessible. So, whether you’re a bright-eyed-and-bushy-tailed newbie, a repeat offender or a grizzled veteran who was building artworks in the desert in 2006 way before anyone else, now’s the time to tool up so the desert doesn’t kick your ass. As we all know, preparation is the difference between a rough time in the dust and unlocking an amazing experience.

This year’s Guide is packed with new info and comes with truly beautiful illustrations by no less than 10 volunteer designers*. Here you go, hit this & enjoy the read:


*Massive shouts go out to everyone involved in contributing illustrations to this year’s Survival Guide: Anthea Duce, Ernst Lass, Grace De Koorn, Philippus Johan Schutte, Karl Schulschenk, Matthew Fraser, Mischka Byram, Natasha Viljoen, Skubalisto and last but not least, the designer who’s contributed illustrations herself and has managed the overall design & layout, Jeanne Fourie.

Also – SIYABULELA to Mava Ntontela, Thembela Zongezile and Craigieji Makhosi for their assistance in helping us realise our dream of getting our Survival Guide translated into isiXhosa!
