Anthea Moys is an artist, teacher and play activist. She engages people in situations that require them to break and remake rules and find new ways to play. In 2008 she completed her Masters in Fine Arts (cum laude) at the University of Witwatersrand with a focus on structured play and performance in public space. Over the last ten years she has travelled widely in her capacity as an artist and play!shop facilitator to Zambia, Berlin, Australia, Sweden, London, Italy, Switzerland and France.
In 2011 Anthea was nominated as one of Mail & Guardians Top 200 Young South Africans. She was awarded the inaugural Standard Bank Young Artist Award for Performance Art (2013), where she created her Vs. Series - reimagining victory as the act of learning rather than conquest.
