Maboneng Township Arts Experience

Cape Town, Gugulethu

Maboneng Township Arts Experience is a national public arts exhibition that turns homes in townships into galleries and the outdoor spaces into performance districts. It currently happens annually over two days in 3 townships around the country - Alexandra in Johannesburg, Gugulethu in Cape Town and Madedeni, Newcastle in Kwazulu Natal. The exhibition includes film screenings, visual art, dance, theatre and music. After 10 years Maboneng Township Arts Experience has turned over 70 homes around townships in South Africa into galleries, exhibited over 50 artists and introduced township residents to art buying. Originating in Alexandra, the project aims to enable citizens to equally share public space and build healthier, sustainable and integrated communities.
