The exhibition Risk at A4 Arts Foundation (November 30, 2019–January 9, 2020) chose to show itself with very few words. "Risk is a show about vulnerability and possibility," read the slim tagline.

Risk in Writing asks eight contributors to bring language to the notion of risk, using the show as a prompt. Anna Hartford, Bill Nasson, Bongani Kona, Hedley Twidle, Kathryn Smith, Siphokazi Jonas and Toni Stuart contribute written and spoken word, and Derek Gripper writes a musical score.
