SALT RIVER WALKING TOUR
We will start our walking tour at the famous Old Biscuit Mill. Formerly a biscuit mill in the 1900's and now home to a range of workshops, designer stores and decadent restaurants. Every Saturday morning a firm local favourite, The Neighbourgood's Market is hosted here. Baz Art is a NPO whose vision is to showcase the power of street art and its ability to transform communities. Sipho, one of the local street art guides, will take us on an in-depth journey of the powerful stories behind the murals and give an insight into the Salt River. This area is considered a hidden gem and is famous for its creative scene in the heart of Cape Town. You will meet the locals in the area and experience Cape Town's subcultures, learn about the artists, their message and different techniques used. Walking you through individual pieces as well as giving you an overview of these colourful pieces to experience first-hand just how street art is changing the perspective in these local communities.
