BE A PROTEST ARTIST  

The Church Project, in Church Street, is an unconventional space centered around the nexus of politics, art and life. Its new exhibition, titled “Say No To War”, allows visitors to graffiti the walls, using the art materials supplied, so you can express your sentiments towards war.

Date: Friday (10am - 3pm); Saturday (10am - 1pm); Sunday (11am - 1pm)
Cost: Free

DISCOVER EMERGING DJ’S AT THE SUNDAY SESSIONS

Support rising artists at Sunday Sessions, in De Waterkant at the trendy KONG. There’s a little something for everyone, including a fantastic line-up, lunch and cocktails. You won’t want to miss out on the live set from the rarely seen Re.dah. Take over this lush and aesthetic space by grooving your way into Monday (which is also a public holiday – did you remember?). 

Date: 1st May, 3pm - 12.30am
Cost: First hour free, from R100 at the door; book here
