Natal Visual Arts Organisation (NAVAO)

NAVAO was an organization of visual artists that was affiliated to the Natal Culture Congress (NCC, later one of the active FOSACO regional structures). NAVAO organised art workshops, produced media for political organisations (including trade unions) and facilitated the participation of local artists in international events, such as the Art from South Africa exhibition (MoMA, Oxford) and the Zabalaza festival, London, 1990.




NAVAO did not produce any publications and documentary material is scarce. This rare document summarises the aims and history of the organisation.
