Culture Connect takes you around Salt River's Public Art
Culture Connect invite you to come and enjoy the striking and varied new murals created in Salt River every February by the annual International Public Art Festival.
This Sat (27 Feb) join Nadia Agherdine and Kate Crane Briggs to see the new art walls and learn about Salt River, including thorny issues like gentrification. Nadia is a long term resident of this historic neighbourhood and one of her community projects is their nature park which we’ll visit.
Meet at Bean Tree Cafe, Browning/Main Rds, Salt River at 9:30am Saturday 27 February. More info HERE.
“I so enjoyed getting to know the area as a guide for the International Public Art Festival. It is only 15 mins cycle ride from home! A highlight was chatting to the artists, such as Sane from the Eastern Cape ” says Kate Crane Briggs of Culture Connect.
Next Fri 5 March, Kate will be leading just a street art/graffiti tour, 9:30am start at Freddie Freeloaders, 48 Salt River Rd, also two hours and walking.
“Do book me for your own tour, either by foot, bicycle (renting possible) or pillion (Cape Sidecars are doing great deals). I have seen a horse and cart in Salt River, but that’s beyond me at the mo! But do ask me about my public art tours in town and the Waterfront. I always try to get an artist to join us at their work.”
