Johannesburg Arts Alive Festival: This event is held at locations all over Johannesburg from the 1st to the 30th of September 2011. Arts Alive is set to put a spring in Johannesburg’s step in September and will celebrate awakening from its winter slumber and the onset of Spring with the Annual Arts Alive Festival. The festival is presented by the City of Joburg. This feast of arts and culture will feature the very best in homegrown theatre, dance, music, visual art and general entertainment. In addition, there will be several exciting international collaborations to look forward to, as well as that long-standing Joburg institution, Jazz on the Lake, which brings smooth sounds to Zoo Lake on Sunday, 6 September. The festival’s focus this year is on forging partnerships with community groups and giving exposure to Joburg artists and arts practitioners from across the length and breadth of the city, in other words: truly taking the arts to the people.
