The published programme for UJ Arts & Culture has been significantly impacted by the arson attack on the University’s Sanlam Auditorium on Monday 16 May 2016.
As a result of the destruction of the Sanlam Auditorium which had mainly been used for graduation ceremonies, alternative arrangements have been put in place for the winter graduation cycle. This has affected the availability of the UJ Arts Centre Theatre and Art Gallery on the Kingsway campus as these facilities will now be used to host some of the graduation ceremonies.
The current exhibition “Art of Human Rights,” will end earlier than scheduled, on Friday 27 May 2016. The walkabout scheduled for Wednesday 1 June at 13h00 will thus also be cancelled. Any further changes to the planned UJ Arts & Culture programme these will be communicated directly to affected patrons and/or clients. For regular updates, please follow @UJArtsCentre on Twitter or visit www.uj.ac.za/arts.
Patrons are reminded that UJ Arts & Culture has revised security controls regarding parking and access to its venues in order to ensure the safety of patrons, staff, students and alumni. To ensure smooth access, tickets or invitations for all events taking place in the Arts Centre and Con Cowan Theatre should be presented to security at the boom when coming on to the relevant campus. Checks may also be conducted on vehicles entering and leaving any of the access gates.
