The Bijou, home to AfrikaBurn HQ will be partaking in the ArtWalk happening on the 1st Dec.
ArtWalk is an open studio event that brings members of the public into the studios of a diverse community of independent artists in the district triangle of Observatory, Woodstock and Salt River. Over two days participating artists and studio collectives will open their workspaces to the public, offering visitors a firsthand experience of the inner-workings of an atelier. Visitors will also have an opportunity to view and purchase artworks directly from the artists. A network of mapped routes has been designed to provide visitors with easy access to participating studios by simply following the ArtWalk routes.
AfrikaBurn artsist include: Daya Heller, Jannie Uitlander, the Cape Town Zine Project, Belinda Blignaut. Conrad Hicks will be making knives, Robert Weinek and Belinda Blignaut will be making watermelon curried bunny chow and there will be bread making too.
