RURAL in the Citi
...Art & Publishing Movement

                Publishing Program            

Formed in 2012, Bochum - Limpopo,  Rural in The Citi (RITC) Art & Publishing Movement aims to advocate for rural artists of all kind of disciplines by creating platforms to show and sell their artwork in the cities through joint exhibition projects, therefore promoting rural development. RITC encourages rural artists to participate in matters that affect their surrounding through art, using these exhibitions as an opportunity to voice their views. The movement publishes and promotes literature in indigenous languages, and offers art workshops for children to support diverse interdisciplinary narratives of contemporary rural art and culture. 


Rural In the Citi (Pty) visited Limpopo for their Book Launch and reading at Seshego Library in 2014.

                Pick-up Artists                    

We are on our way to pick-up rural artists.

Rural artists tend to be footloose. They are not tied to a specific place and work mainly from home. It’s always a struggle to find affordable space in metropolitan areas; rural areas are more of a convenient. Once Rural in the Citi Movement (RITC) hosts a population of artists, they can help the region attract non-artist residents who value the arts as an amenity, and they can engage all residents in relationship-building through cultural activity.




As publishers of indigenous language books for children, we are always interested to work with:

  • Storytellers
  • Translators
  • Illustrators
  • Layout Designer
We have more other great opportunities available in publishing and art around Limpopo and South Africa in general. Let us know about your interest and we will shift aside the mountain to help you achieve it.

We are constantly looking for Artists to do a collaboration of art exhibitions and workshops together. If you are interested please contact us wherever you are in South Africa.

Send us images of your work and we promise to get back to you.
