Opportunity Description

Attention all creatives in Cape Town!

We are seeking creative interventions to liven up the streets of our beautiful city for the International Public Art Festival and beyond. Whether you’re a seasoned pro or just starting out, we welcome your submissions.

We are looking for submissions that are visually striking, thought-provoking, and respectful of the community and environment. These submissions can be in any medium, such as busking, sculptures, interventions, or community workshops.

The Festival theme is “What if?”, and we encourage work that explores this question and focused on ideas such as public participation, social commentary, or simply adding beauty to an otherwise mundane space.

The interventions should be small in scale and where possible, should not require any special permissions or permits. We encourage artists to consider how to activate interesting and overlooked public spaces.

The Festival will take place in public spaces across Cape Town’s CBD and Company’s Garden from 1-5 March 2023.

We can’t wait to see what you come up with! Let’s make Cape Town’s streets a vibrant and exciting place for everyone.

Please note that we are taking submissions from Cape Town based artists only at this time.

Please note that we have a limited number of spaces available, and we are looking for small but effective and playful interventions with budgets ranging from R1000-R20 000.
