Ukhona Ntsali Mlandu is Director of Greatmore Studios and Founder of makwande.republic in the Goshen Village, Eastern Cape. Mlandu has an interest in the politics of spatial and gender justice, heritage and memory.
Mlandu completed a 3 year Arts Management Fellowship with the Devos Institute of Arts Management and was part of the inaugural cohort of Parent Artist Residence at Elsewhere Studios in Paonia, Colorado. Mlandu insists on creating work with her children and finding spaces that are deliberate about acknowledging her role as a mother, as an act of survival and resistance against an art world that makes invisible this aspect of one’s identity.
