Cape Town's creativity has a new home

Cape Town's creativity has a new home

Whilst on a very boring trip to the offices of the City of Cape Town at the Civic Centre to conduct a very boring bit of administration, we happened upon this wonderful collection.

Inside the Civic Centre (which is itself quite an iconic building) is a place called the Concourse, which is a sort of forum on the first floor.

The Concourse is normally rather dull filled with not very much at all but today was full of the Mayor's Market: this is a collection of hand-crafted art works made by emerging artists around Cape Town.

I was so impressed by the standard of work on show: superb beading, really impressive wood prints, great printed bags and excellent photography.

So impressed by this initiative to show off the City's talent right in the middle of town.
