Culture Connect SA hosts a walking tour of Salt River, which is disturbed every February by the International Public Art Festival, which creates over 100 new murals each year.
The tour sees Jason Redmen – otherwise known as Dfeat – leading the tour of Salt River while also showing works of his own. Having begun street art/graffiti painting in 1999 while still at school, Redmen has since worked with both local and international street artists on projects near and far. Practice makes perfect was a project he started at Queenspark High School, Woodstock, to inspire students to hold to their aspirations. He currently teaches art to primary school children and his work can be seen at Jason Bakery on Bree St, Amandla Edu Football’s offices in Salt River and Elsies River among more.
The tour finishes at Food Jams and participants then have the option for a lunch hosted by Master Chef SA finalist and founder of Food Jams, Jade De Waal.
Founded by Kate Briggs in 2012, Culture Connect SA initiates and runs events and tours, some open to the public, others private. Art, design and architecture are their focus.
The Salt River Street Art tour is to be booked on a day of the participant’s convenience and organised via email, link available below.
