Joburg is one of the world’s art cities, fuelled by a network of studio spaces throughout the inner city that give life daily to the city’s status as an art capital. In May 2022 the doors will open to welcome visitors to the studios of close to 100 working artists. Initiated by the META foundation, OPEN STUDIOS JOBURG will highlight seven art buildings across the historical CBD and beyond where visitors will be invited to meet the artists, interact with the works, and enjoy a programme of exhibitions, walkabouts, performance and design. 

The sites are: August House, Bag Factory Artists’ Studios, Ellis House, Living Artists Emporium, LAPA at Breezeblock, Transwerke Studios and Victoria Yards.  

OPEN STUDIOS JOBURG will take place over two days, Saturday 28 May and Sunday 29 May, 2022 with selected studios being open on these two different days.

Please make sure that you book for the days you wish to attend.
