Festival Description

The Africa Centre’s, Infecting The City Public Arts Festival, will explode onto the streets and public and communal spaces of Cape Town. The Festival is the largest and most diverse annual public arts Festival in South Africa. The events celebrate local and international artists encourages audiences to see, hear, and smell the extraordinary by taking a fresh look at the Mother City, its citizens, and themselves in radically different ways.

Public art has always been part of who we are on this continent and in this country given our history of public ritual, public protest and celebration. The interconnectedness of the African “us” meets challenge after challenge in a public, social way, brought to vibrant life in artistic expression. There is too that part of our history that impeded this public interconnectedness, throwing people apart and far away from each other, a physical and psychic separation still waiting to be healed. Infecting the City is a small attempt at igniting this interconnectedness.
