INTERNATIONAL PUBLIC ART FESTIVAL – CAPE TOWN
Organised by Baz-Art, 20 local and international artists will be painting large murals in Salt River. This 5th edition will bring the number of murals well above a 100.
The festival is a showcase of how public art can express community values, enhance our environment, transform a landscape, heighten our awareness, or question our assumptions. Placed in public sites, this art is there for everyone, a form of collective community expression.
BAZ-ART IS ULTRA-CONSCIOUS OF OUR ENVIRONMENTAL AND SOCIETAL FOOTPRINT AND HAS SET OUT TO WALK THE TALK BY DOING WHAT WE CAN, SO THAT EVERY ASPECT OF OUR ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL PUBLIC ART FESTIVAL HAS A MINIMAL IMPACT ON THE ENVIRONMENT AS WELL AS PROMOTING SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC INCLUSION.
Being in the throes of Covid-19, we need to think now, more than ever about how to ‘future-proof’ our communities through environmental, economic and social sustainability.
IPAF 2021 will showcase public art activations that focus on the idea of sustainability, through environmental awareness, creative sustainable solutions, economic enrichment through skills-building and sharing, and an even greater focus on community building.
PROPOSALS FOR PARTICIPATION IN IPAF 2021 ARE OPEN!
We are looking for proposals for Public Art Interventions that are public friendly and respond to the theme 100% Sustainable.
