I LOVE JOZI
Who else will understand the true passion for Jozi than her residents? We will explore and discover some of Jozi’s hidden secrets, gems and treasures!
We commissioned three of South African’s top graffiti artists to bring to life and immortalise iconic Jozi landmarks. This larger than life project demystifies this art genre showing visitors how graffiti is used to combat inner city decay.
Make sure you don’t miss this once in a lifetime experience!

Bookworm or not, every one of us enjoys a great cookbook, autobiography or a bit more about your heritage at some point or another. If not the latter and you only read the occasional Roald Dahl to your kids, it still locks you into the category of reading.
This year we create a nook for every book…six themed nooks to inspire you to create your own in your home! Look out for great Book competitions and wins!
