The 5th annual City Of Gold festival is around the corner, starting on the 4th of October and ending the 10th of October.
The aim of City Of Gold is to establish Johannesburg as a destination for graffiti and street artists from around the world and assist the development of the local graffiti/street art community. In addition to this the festival seeks to highlight the positive aspects of this art form as well as involving the general public to create a heightened awareness and appreciation for it. Various events will take place at different locations in the city of Joburg which will showcase the finest in both international and local artists. The individual events and mural projects will attempt to activate and enhance sites in the Johannesburg CBD that are often feared or forgotten by the city’s inhabitants.
The individual elements that make up the week long festival include: An exhibition, large-scale mural projects, film-screenings, and street art tours.
