The Cape Town Carnival is a yearly event that brings together artists, designers, dancers, costume makers, float builders, choreographers, students, bands, community groups and the public for a magical procession down Green Point main road. This year I went behind-the-scenes to the warehouse where the floats are dreamt up and build and to the make-up and costume departments. What electric creative energy on the day and night! I absolutely love to see the excitement and wonde
I saw on Facebook that my friend Petra Mason was coming to town from the US for the Cape Town Art Fair. Get accredited she encouraged, so I did. Although I've done many many film festivals all over the world, this was my first art fair and I loved every minute of it. It was really fantastic to have so much under one roof at one time - the art, (obviously), the people, the organized talks, the kids, the Pan African Space Station's amazing music, the NGO's . I learned a lot!
