Full description
Arrive at Phansi Museum hidden along the back streets of Glenwood. Wait for the dancing curator of the city’s largest collection of tribal art. Explore the museum with your guide and unlock indigenous knowledge systems and South African traditional arts and culture. Your next stop will be KZNSA or the KwaZulu Natal Society of the Arts. Discover this renowned contemporary art gallery that exhibits and markets local artists. Meet one of the curators of the gallery and stroll through this thought-provoking space. Get some insight into the works exhibited and the shared background of some of the artists. Admire the artworks at KZNSA where the majority of it is available for sale. Additionally, the gallery's shop is home to the best locally made art and crafts where the proceeds go back into KZNSA's programs, and as importantly to the artists themselves. Meet one of the two celebrated local street artists (“Mooki Lion” or Dane Stops) for the final leg of this tour. The two artists will help you unlock the trendy suburb of Glenwood on foot as you track down the public portfolios of graffiti and local street artists. This part of the tours is part walking and part driving as the locations between the popular street art spots are exactly close together. All that art and walking should have built quite an appetite. Only a famous Durban "Bunny Chow" will do the trick. The "Bunny Chow" is Durban popular street food that you can buy at your own expense. You're sure to have quite a few questions regarding that name. Don't worry, no rabbits are harmed in the making of a "Bunny Chow". Vegan and vegetarian options are available.
