"The central thrust of the White Paper is to establish an integrated national dispensation of arts, culture and heritage. It therefore underscores the inter-relationship between the primary artistic disciplines and practices of the visual arts, craft and design; the performing arts of theatre, music and dance and creative writing as distinct and related practices of artistry, with multiple properties including their intrinsic, social, educational and economic values and capacities."

Now in its fourth year, ART WEEK CAPE TOWN will be taking place from Tuesday 16th February – Sunday 21st February 2016!

What began in 2012 as a small project driven by the simple idea of highlighting local contemporary art grew into the only annual festival to shine a spotlight on both the Johannesburg and Cape Town art scenes, pulling together galleries, public institutions, curators and artists for one focused week of art happenings.
