Nike Jonah and Erwin Maas
Join Nike Jonah and Erwin Maas, Co-Executive Directors of the global networking platform the Pan-African Creative Exchange, to learn savvy ways to pitch artistic ideas and projects. Artists will pitch their work at tables with attendees. This has proven to be a valuable way of practicing pitching in an informal setting that allows for artists to connect with delegates in the field. As artists move from one table to the next, attendees will learn about a variety of up-and-coming artistic projects and benefit from constructive feedback in a conversational setting.

About Pan-African Creative Exchange (PACE)
PACE, founded at the prestigious Vrystaat Arts Festival at the University of the Free State in Bloemfontein, South Africa, serves as a biennial arts market and showcase for African and African-diaspora artists. The platform provides a gateway for presenting tour-ready work, showcasing excerpts, pitching new creations, facilitating producer exchanges, hosting workshops, and fostering critical debates—ultimately creating an invaluable network for artists and creatives. The 2024 U-M School of Social Work Artist Residency will feature a bi-coastal duo, Nike Jonah and Erwin Maas, who specialize in art consultancy across various creative sectors. Their residency, taking place during two weeks in February (Feb. 8-14) and April (April 10-15) will encompass masterclasses, workshops, and conversations aimed at enriching the U-M community and the Southeast Michigan region.
