Joburg decides to throw a month long party during September, and every one is invited. Art's Alive, as it is named, was launched in 1991 and has been an exciting cultural experience for all those who attend it. It is deemed one of the biggest events in the African continent, and I agree fully. There is a mixture of dance, poetry, film, live shows, workshops, visual arts, and theatre among other things. Some of the events throughout the month are free, and others reasonably priced. I have attended two of their Jazz on the Lake festival's, in 2008 and in 2011. I would like to make it an annual date, and honestly nothing should be stopping me from that.
Here are some of the pictures I took of Asa:
If your'e in Joburg in September, slot this in your diary and go check it out. You will not be disappointed (:
