Art, Craft & Design Tour: Description

Open a window into the design heart of South Africa, where creativity is at the cutting edge of a cultural revival. See the country’s highlights, hidden gems and iconic sights – in late summer.

Uncover things vibrant in design and precious in quality.
Meet trail blazers, local cognoscenti, and artists who stretch the powers of innovation.
Enjoy privileged access, renowned art collections and enlightening museums.
Unearth why South Africa’s a cultural melting pot with artisanal legacies from the East.
Discover how design, art and craft are providing a third way between entrepreneurship and aid.

In Cape Town, take in its spectacular natural beauty while dovetailing with the cream of local talent at the country’s premier creative events: the Cape Town Art Fair – a transcontinental platform showcasing Africa’s vibrant contemporary art landscape; the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (Zeitz MOCAA) in the V&A Waterfront; limited edition, high-end, local design from celebrated artists curated by Southern Guild; VANSA’s programme of events (Visual Arts Network of SA) for That Art Fair.
See landmark locations like the Castle of Good Hope – the oldest surviving colonial building in South Africa, crème de la crème exhibits, as well as below the radar destinations and authentic creative initiatives.
Explore up and coming industrial districts like Woodstock where creativity and entrepreneurship flourish among hip galleries and studios.

In the Winelands, visit private art collections, studios of seminal artists and sculpture-filled gardens set among historic homesteads, world class vineyards and unique Cape Dutch architecture.

In Johannesburg, get a taste of the city’s cosmopolitan mix, shape of its skyline and standout shops.
Go on gallery walkabouts. Explore top creative hubs with tenants as varied as they are impressive.
Appreciate democracy at work in an art collection with-a-human-rights-theme at a site that celebrates SA’s liberal constitution.
Take in a powerful museum that captures the journey of first man out of Africa in a visually arresting way.
See ”the” artefact that links us to the origins of design thinking, some 100,000 years ago at a centre that decodes human kind’s span of evolution.
Delight in art-strewn gardens set within the Cradle of Humankind, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that soothe and stimulate with their unexpected pieces in unlikely places.
