Inner City Studio Collectives

There is a further exciting development of previously abandoned buildings in Joburg inner city being taken over by artist collectives who establish their studios in a communal context. These initiatives are all in quite gritty parts of town, so it is advised to go with a local. Once a year these studios are opened to the public in an artfair weekend. There are links here to the various studios which took part in Open Studios 2023. These studios are worth visiting as there is some incredible work being produced by these artists – a great way to start collecting.
