Montreal (Canada) - Expressions of work and education in South Africa change so quickly that anything you write about them is redundant by the time the ink dries. "Stellenbosch Academy of Design and Photography aspires to conquer this uncertainty by producing graduates who are elastic enough to make a valuable contribution to the creative community they ultimately join," says Paul Thomas, Executive Director.

The Stellenbosch Academy of Design and Photography is the newest member of the Icograda Education Network (IEN). Located in Stellenbosch (South Africa), the Academy offers a 3-year BA degree in Applied Design (specialising in graphic design and photography).

Barbara Fassler, the Academy's founding director, provides the impetus for its broader positioning and community standing. She is the Icograda liaison for the the Academy. With her roots firmly grounded in the Academy's conception, Barbara's focus on the bigger picture of community ties provides a solid platform from which to launch the Academy's mission to become the educational institution that most contributes to changing the worldwide perception of South African creativity.

Stellenbosch Academy of Design and Photography holds conditional accreditation from the Council on Higher Education for the BA degree in Applied Design and has been provisionally registered by the Department of Education.
