In Celebration of Women’s Month, various deteriorating signs in Newtown will be painted over with images of African women by local artists. This will take place on Saturday, 24 August 2019 and the public is invited to participate in a free, self-guided tour to view each sign as it is painted. At each location, participants will be invited to engage with topics around women, public art and Newtown.
The central location to receive self-guided tour maps will be the site at which the Brenda Fassie statue formerly stood, outside the Music Factory (formerly Bassline) at Newtown Park. The public is invited to participate in the free self-guided tour at any time between 10h00 and 15h00. Two guided tours will also be offered, departing at 11h00 and 13h00 from the former Brenda Fassie Statue.
