Incubator of Creative Projects, including AfrikaBurn
I am Monique. After six and a half years in the desert, I have a doctorate in driving rebar pegs into rock and shale and a PhD in the economics of artistic chaos and wrangling itinerant misfits and renegades. Otherwise known as the original and still active co-ordinator of AfrikaBurn, I see myself as a fire starter of sorts, an instigator and incubator of creative projects.
I make sport of poking people in their creative ribs. I believe that fun, and waking up creativity, is a most powerful vector for change in this world! I was also a partner in the Mother City Queer Projects, have two degrees in Environmental Science and Social Anthropology and had an incarnation as a game ranger.
My idea worth spreading to present at TEDxCapeTown 2012 is around building snowballs of engagement and practicing imagining.
