In Johannesburg’s inner city lies an exclusive art building, housing more than 50 independent, pan-African contemporary artists, in private art studios, known to the locals as ‘The Artists’ Playground’.
To the outsider it’s a mere 1940s historic structure, but inside is where the magic lives, in five storeys of private art studios.
August House gives artists a unique creative hub. With its high columns, authentic architecture and large open plan floors, it’s a wonderful blend of inspiration and stillness. Once a light warehouse, August House celebrates 11 years as a well-established, local and international contemporary African artists’ community, within walking distance from the Maboneng, Arts on Main district.
