We also operate as agents to the artists we work with and are dealers in contemporary South African art. Art Source South Africa's activities are organized into the following divisions: Art Source Consulting, Art Source Communications, Art Source Coaching, Art Source Publishing, Art Source Projects, Art Source Products and Art (Re)Source South Africa
Past and current projects include contemporary art exhibitions, public art commissions, rural craft development and community outreach projects, business strategy, corporate social investment consultation, curriculum development, change management and local and international artist exchanges. Professional long term profile and career management is offered to South African contemporary, mid-career artists. Individual career coaching is a new service developed in 2012 in response to market demand for artists looking to engage more fully with their career and practice.
