Arts on Main is a thriving cultural hub in the inner city of Johannesburg,that once booming metropolis that captured the hearts of gold chasers near and far. With the current generation not privy to the vibrancy that once was Johannesburg, the Maboneng Precinct (including Arts on Main, The Bioscope and Main Street Life) is drawing people back and reigniting the creative and cultural passion of years gone by. Boasting a unique blend of studio, commercial, residential and retail spaces, Arts on Main is a hotspot for Jozi’s creative community to develop and share ideas. It is truly a place where people of diverse backgrounds can share in the legacy of the booming city that was and move creatively into the future together.
Winkball citizen video reporters Angus and Tshepang set out to ask attendees what brought them to the precinct and what they feel the importance of cultural hubs and the city’s regeneration is. If you were at the market, out and about sharing in a day of delectable food and delightful fun, but were not interviewed, upload your thoughts on the regeneration of inner city Jozi to this wall now.
