Cape Town’s creative community is being called to enter the first ever Daddy Bloom Flower Show, taking place in the Airstream Penthouse Trailer Park on the roof of The Grand Daddy Hotel from the 8th to the 11th of October 2009. Instead of using natures blooms, designers, artists, ceramists, origami experts and textile designers are being encouraged to submit ideas for floral fantasies made from non floral materials – paper to porcelain, wool to wire and any medium in between.

There are no barriers to entry but proposals should be received by 11 September 2009. Successful entrants will be notified on Wednesday, 16 September, giving them ample time to create their magic gardens.

Any creative individuals or group can enter. It’s a chance to showcase creative ingenuity by recycling the urban space and giving life to the concrete jungle. Displays will take up temporary residence amongst the Airstream Park’s garden and sun decks. Judges will award R1 000.00 and a stay at the Airstream Park to the winning garden, with a R1000 audience choice award going to the biggest crowd pleaser. The display will be open to the public from 8 -11 October 2009, during the daytime. Visitors to The Daddy Bloom Flower Show exhibition will be asked to donate R10 to the Grand Daddy’s Feed me Daddy programme which assists an impoverished community in the Transkei.

The Grand Daddy hotel and Airstream Trailer Park are owned by the Daddy Long Legs Group. Their original Daddy Long Legs Art Hotel inspired a business philosophy that ensures creativity leads form in all their hospitality offerings. In particular, the group sees their hotels as a platform for local artists to define the Cape Town experience. Their recent nomination for a BASA Award and position as a Loeries finalist suggests that the group is succeeding in bringing art to tourism; defining the artists as the heroes of a Cape Town experience. Daddy Bloom is an opportunity for visitors and Capetonians to enjoy a creative urban celebration of spring.

All queries and submissions will need to be e-mailed to sascha@rabbitinahat.co.za or call 021 447 3198
