In our 4th year, you’re again invited to join us, the AfrikaBurn and Observatory communities, as we fill the streets of Obs with art, craft, performance, vintage and mutant vehicles and good vibes!
This year’s event will see us build on the great formula that’s seen Streetopia become a highlight of the year for residents and visitors: our art & craft market will feature even more local artisans and authentic home-made products.
It all kicks off at 10am and the official event schedule closes at 6pm – and this time round, thanks to increased participation of Obs businesses, we’ve extended the footprint from Station Rd to St Michael’s Rd, enabling a fantastic display of vintage automobiles to have its own area this time round.
As always, whether you’re an Obs resident or business owner or a visitor, you’re invited to step up and get involved – and you can find out how over on the Participate page of our website:
As a community-based event, residents of Obs, Salt River, Mowbray and Rosebank are given preference for stalls in our market. If you’d like to secure a stall, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or use the link available on the Participate page of our website: streetopia.co.za/participate/
As with every year, you’re invited to bring a project or performance and add it to the mix on the day. Our team can assist you with logistics, transport and placement – all you need to do is reach out on email@example.com
If you’d like to volunteer for any of the many tasks that make it possible to pull off our event, feel free to take a look at the Participate page of our site (or look out for links announced here on our event page).
WHAT IS STREETOPIA?
It’s an opportunity to invert the usual ratio of urban infrastructure to creativity. A free, non-profit, one-day community-based event created through the collaboration of AfrikaBurn and the residents, businesses, civic organisations, NGO’s and CSO’s. And it’s a helluva lot of fun for everyone – because everyone’s invited.
