Infecting the City is back! Call for Proposals

The Institute for Creative Arts (ICA) and Africa Centre is now open for proposals from interested candidates to present at the Infecting the City public arts festival 2019. This event will run from 25 – 30 November 2019.

Being the longest running public arts festival in South Africa, it will provide an opportunity to bring art, music, dance and performance out of theatres and galleries. The artists will be able to showcase their art directly on the streets and public spaces of Cape Town.
