William Kentridge has started an arts nonprofit dedicated to experimental projects. Called The Centre for the Less Good Idea, the Johannesburg-based organization will facilitate a series of performance-based installations March 1-5 of this year. “I want to start a small art centre, where people could do experimental art, productions, operas, things they wouldn’t get to do elsewhere,” the artist told The Financial Times in a September interview.

The name of the project stems from the artist’s fascination with what he calls the “less good idea.” “By which I mean the secondary idea,” Kentridge explained in the Guardian, “You start with one plan and then something better emerges from the periphery that would have been impossible without the first thought.”
