Infecting the City 2015 is crowdfunding

The Africa Centre has launched a new partnership with the crowdfunding platform Thundafund to expand the scope and scale of artworks showcased in Infecting the City (ITC) 2015.

This will be the eighth iteration of this annual, multi-disciplinary public arts festival scheduled to take place in the public spaces of Cape Town in March 2015.

A selection of artists shortlisted for ITC 2015 is participating in this campaign with the goal of raising 50% of their production costs. The Africa Centre will match this, securing their place in the final ITC 2015 programme.

Infecting the City’s crowdfunding campaign will run for roughly 6 weeks, until Tuesday, 16 December 2014. Each one of the eleven artworks for which we are currently crowdfunding has a unique profile on the Thundafund website:
