INFECTING THE CITY

Written by Elsa Brown: As South Africa prepares for the upcoming World Cup, other festivals are underway. For one week in mid-February, public spaces in Cape Town will be transformed by the yearly festival – Infecting the City – a provocative national and international performance and public art event. Artists from countries around the world, including Zimbabwe, China, Greece, and the Netherlands, are participating in this entirely free and accessible event.

One of our favorite parts of the festival is the Take a Child to Art initiative, where 50 and 100 young people are led on guided tours of the performances and installations each day. Their photos, reactions and impressions are then posted online daily. Be sure to check out Infecting the City’s website. It has tons of images, video, and information about the events, participating artists, festival history and public art at large. Here’s what the organizers have to say: “We want to position the arts literally and figuratively at the centre of society, to redefine the urban terrain as a space of creativity, and to effect social enrichment and transformation through the arts.” Click Read More for additional information.
