Misha Krynauw

Misha Krynauw is a nonbinary art and creative writer from Cape Town, South Africa. Their debut theatre script "The Infinite Woman" premiered at the Suidoosterfees Festival in May 2021 following their residency at the Paulet House as a part of the Jong Sterre Mentorship Program in the previous year. Their original creative writing has been published nationally and internationally online and in print, and since June, 2018 they have been contributing as an art writer for Artthrob, which was founded by Sue Williamson in August 1997 writing features, reviews and conducting interviews for the publication. They were awarded a curatorial internship at Greatmore Studios in 2020 with the Presidential Stimulus Program; selected as one of 12 aspiring curators for A4 Art Foundation's Curatorial Connective of 2021 and was most recently awarded a scholarship to attend Lolwe's 2022 Novel Generation Class taught by multi-award-winning writer Mubanga Kalimamukwento. Using writing as the foundation for their pursuits they appreciate a creative approach to the duties of archival, research and memory-making processes as a part of their intersecting interests in the arts.
