JoziWalks2018 Alexandra - Townships into Towns

Sat May 19, 09:00 - Sun May 20, 12:00
No 63 4th Avenue, Selbourne Road, Alexandra Township


Join Siphiwe Ngwenya of the Maboneng Township Arts Experience for a guided walk through Alexandra’s underground artist community and art spaces. 

Born and raised in Alexandra, painter and “self-taught social scientist” Ngwenya highlights Alexandra’s emerging artists, transforming local residents’ homes into art galleries. 

The tour also includes film screenings, talks by local historians and a chance to sample locally-renowned Mama Queen’s vetkoeks, a staple for the quintessential 'kasi breakfast'. 

In particular this JoziWalk gives a fresh perspective on Joburg’s oldest township as Alexandra’s past and present merge with a chance to invest in affordable art from emerging artists.
