International Public Art Festival in Cape Town

International Public Art Festival in Cape Town

The 2nd annual International Public Art Festival (IPAF), a 9-day festival to be held from 10 to 19 February 2018, will take place in the community of Salt River, Cape Town.

 

This second festival promises to yet again bring together an eclectic mix of artists from different continents, in one space for nine days, to paint beautiful, large murals for the public to observe and engage with the local and international artists. Each artist will be given a wall space in Salt River as they interpret this year’s theme of “Nature Doesn’t Need Us: We Need Nature.” Between 2017 and 2018, 80 murals would have been painted in Salt River. 

 

The festival, is just one of BAZ-ART’s missions to use art as a fun outlet for social change, one community at a time and draw art lovers out into the streets. Attendance is free, but private guided tours by local certified tour guides and spray paint workshops hosted by our renowned SA artists can be bought from Webticket.

 

This year Baz-Art is partnering with IPAF Mexico and IPAF Canada. Thanks to the strong partnership with the respective foreign missions and the city of Cape Town, IPAF 2018 will see artists from a variety of genres and places coming from as far as Flanders, France, Ukraine, Finland, alongside a dozen local artists from South Africa. One of the One of the artists is the Flemish street artist ROA, best known for painting birds and animals in an urban environment.

 

Asked about why Baz-art brought this annual event to Cape Town, organizer Alexandre Tilmans said, “Public festivals act as a creative vessel to enhance artists and make the communities stand strong together. This festival showcases the rich history, creativity, skills, diversity and style of South Africa’s public artists, as a result, we act as a platform for painting murals and billboards providing commissioned work to South African artists at a local and international level”, concludes Alexandre. The full artist line up can be consulted on the Baz-Art and IPAF websites.

 

The International Public Art Festival in Salt River 2018 falls within the art month in Cape Town, with events such as the Cape Town Art Fair and That Art Fair, the week promises to explore various art forms, for a completely explosive experience in art immersion.

 

Tickets to the SPRAY PAINT workshops and GUIDED TOURS will be on sale from Webticket.

The Government of Flanders has a long-standing relationship with the Government of Mozambique. The Country Strategy Paper III (CSP III) 2016-2020, which is the product of a joint consultation process between the two Governments, states as its common mission “to promote the fundamental right to the highest attainable standard of health for the entire Mozambican population in general, and of its adolescent population more specifically, as part of a strategy to reduce absolute poverty in the country.”


O Governo da Flandres e de Moçambique cooperam estreitamente desde o ano de 2002. O Documento de Estratégia para o Pais (DEP) 2016-2020 entre o Governo da Flandres e o Governo de Moçambique estabelece a missão comum de “reforçar e promover o direito fundamental de acesso ao mais elevado padrão de saúde para toda a população de Moçambique, em geral, e mais especificamente para a sua população adolescente, como parte de uma estratégia de redução da pobreza absoluta no Pais”.
