Something rather wonderful is happening on the Greenpoint fanwalk en route to the soccer stadium.

An inspiring and very exciting eclectic medley of art, craft, design, poetry and live music in a collaborative showcase of creative Cape Town

At 37 Main Road in Greenpoint the Cape Creative Exhibition is anticipated to be the melting pot for the city’s art aficionados and ubër cool. Its newly renovated stunning industrial style double storey is the only location in Greenpoint combining art, culture, eye candy, live entertainment and a cafeteria by cake guru Martin Senekal overlooking a large garden. It is also the new home of the pop-up store/gallery of 100% local art and design collective, The Fringe Arts. Open daily from 10h00 to 17h00 and suitable for children.

This exhibition forms part of a R6-million intervention to stimulate growth and support local creative talent. It brings together a variety of works produced by experienced designers and artists affiliated to the Cape Craft and Design Institute (CCDI), Cape Film Commission, Visual Arts Network of South Africa (VANSA), Performing Arts Network of South Africa (PANSA) and the Africa Centre.

It is sponsored by the City of Cape Town and spearheaded by the Indalo Project.

Well worth a visit!
