When Lyndall Cain started at The Centre, in 2016, she began as a researcher and project manager, while also providing writing support for students and helping to copyedit CCA publications. In 2018 she was promoted to liaison officer and while she took on a new job she continued in her previous roles too.
She co-convened and taught on both Critical Thinking in Curatorship and Local Issues in Curatorship, with Carine Zaayman and Nina Liebenberg, respectively. She spent a lot of time working with the Honours in Curatorship students (particularly through teaching and providing writing and administrative support) and while she is interested in the intersection of education and curating, she is also a writer of fiction and likes to look at curating as a creative process that spans all disciplines, or as another form of storytelling.
Lyndall completed her undergraduate degree in English Literature and Art History, her Honours in Curatorship and her Masters in Creative Writing (with distinction) all at the University of Cape Town.
In February 2020 Lyndall resigned from her official role at The Centre, but continues as an associate.
