City of Gold Festival is back

The 6th edition of the City of Gold Urban Art Festival is set to take place this 7-13 October, with international artists SOBEKCIS and MALAKKAI being the first of four guest artists to be announced.  

A Grayscale Concepts project, City of Gold aims to establish Johannesburg as a destination for graffiti and street artists from around the world while also assisting the development of the local graffiti and street art community.

In addition to this, the festival seeks to highlight the positive aspects of this art form as well as involving the general public to create a heightened awareness and appreciation for it.

Various events will take place at different locations across the city which will showcase the finest in both international and local artists. The individual events and mural projects will attempt to activate and enhance sites in the Johannesburg CBD that are often feared or forgotten by the city's inhabitants.

The individual elements that make up the week-long festival include: An exhibition, large-scale mural projects, film-screenings, and street art tours.
