A celebration of world art, music and dance is coming to Playford this March with the Sanaa North: Street Art Fest at Elizabeth Downs Shopping Centre.
The festivities on Saturday 2 March will see a melting pot of cultures come together to develop “a better world through creativity” for the Playford Palace Festival.
The Adelaide Fringe event, in collaboration between the City of Playford and Sanaa, is a family-friendly multi-arts festival with plenty of free entertainment and activities for everyone to enjoy.
Sanaa Founder, Victoria Lewis, said following the success of its event in Adelaide City, the non-for-profit organisation was excited to work with the Playford community.
“It’s a form of creating intercultural understanding through art and creativity and bringing people together.”
There will be plenty to keep the kids busy with a face-painter, balloon-artist and games, as well as entertainment from talented South Australian artists including DyspOra and Elsy Wameyo form Playback 808, Hannah Yates, International Revival Gospel Choir and Penelope Shum and the Soul Council.
All the entertainment will surround Street Artist, Sparrow Uganda, who will be creating a large scale mural on the shopping centre wall.
Sparrow will use the art form of graffiti to promote change and unify voices, while creating a beautiful space for the community.
“I like to play around more with patterns, animals and faces that really represents where I come from and also represents the people,” Sparrow said.
“The event will be opportunity to listen to music, dance and create.”
The free event, Sanaa North: Street Art Fest, will be hosted at the Elizabeth Downs Shopping Centre on Saturday 2 March from 2pm.
