The Fan Walk
10am – 2pm
Paper decoration in the Fan Walk and St Georges Mall
Four fourth-year graphic design students from CPUT are working with Andrew Putter to decorate part of the Fan Walk and St Georges Mall with the kind of paper tape that is usually used in cashier’s tills. The decorations have been conceived not to damage anything. The designers start working from about 10am, and will remove their work by about 1:30. Visit the Fan Walk from Loop (near Lunchworks) to St Andrews Square, and St Georges from Wale down to Longmarket. The young designers are Amber-Jade Adendorff, Anthea Marthinus, Jacqui Morris and Jason Daniels.

“That Spirit…” at Saint Andrews Church 10am – 11.15am
This is an experience that weaves together a drumming circle, narrative poetry underpinned by the beautiful sounds of the Mbira (thumb piano) and a conversation exploring and celebrating the diversity in our City. Audience participation in the true African sense! It will be facilitated by Themba Lonzi and Desiree Paulsen, who are both experienced facilitating transformation and community development. There will be 19 drums and some percussion instruments, but feel free to bring your own – and your friends and family.
