The third International Public Art Festival (IPAF) takes place in Salt River, Cape Town from 09 to 17 February 2019 under this year’s theme of GENERATION NEXT: EDUCATE, COLLABORATE, EMPOWER.
The 2019 theme represents a focus on the future and the responsibility of present and successive generations to create a better world for all. In this spirit, theIPAF2019 festival in Cape Town will again harness the immense power of public art to engage individuals, communities, businesses and others around the theme and help promote collective responsibility for one another and the well-being of the planet.
Organiser of the IPAF,BAZ-ART, believes strongly that educating present and future generations, promoting dialogue and collaboration and empowering individuals and communities through public art can help promote positive change and attitudes.
In today’s fast paced world, the power of visual media is increasingly playing an important role in grabbing public attention and often provides a critical access point of information and reflection. Recognising this, the artists participating in IPAF 2019 will use walls and public spaces to visually reinforce messages around the theme for their bold, large, colourful and insightful artworks.
Attendance is free.
There will be guided tours and workshops and members of the public will be able to see local and international artists in action as they produce their works.
