Dance Umbrella Festival 




Dance Umbrella Joburg will take place from 26 February to 15 March 2015 and will offer Joburgers an opportunity to discover, experience and enjoy contemporary dance on all levels. New local and international works will take over the city with dance happening all over Jozi. A highlight of the 2015 festival is the strong focus on female choreographers. Since Dance Umbrella’s inception male choreographers have dominated the contemporary dance scene … but over the past years this has shifted. Dance Umbrella 2015 will focus on and celebrate both the established and the young up-and-coming female choreographers who will share the programme with their male counterparts.


Look out for coverage of the festival on 10and5!

Graffiti South Africa Book Launch and Exhibition




The three-day book launch features an exhibition, book signing and street art tour, as well as live graffiti painting.


Kalashnikovv Gallery, 153 Smit Street, Braamfontein

Young Collectors Gallery 




The aim of the Gallery is to create a wider platform for the artists and enable younger collectors to acquire quality artworks from well-known respected artists at affordable prices. Exposure to art is the first step. The gallery strives to develop good relationships with its first-time buyers, helping match them to the feel of the art, providing the new buyer with more information about the artist, what inspired them and how they created the work.
