An African street artist is set to add a splash of colour to Playford Palace festivities on Saturday 2 March at the Elizabeth Downs Shopping Centre.

The City of Playford has partnered with Sanaa: A better world through creativity for the Adelaide Fringe to provide a family-friendly cultural experience.

City of Playford Mayor Glenn Docherty said Council continues to support and promote its growing arts culture and community in Playford.

“We are excited to be working again with Sanaa, following the musically inspired art feature at Northern Sound System last year,” Mayor Docherty said.

“In 2019 we will see the creation of a community-influenced street art piece within Elizabeth Downs Shopping Centre.”

Sanaa Founder, Victoria Lewis said the organisation was excited to bring the multi-arts festival platform to the northern suburbs, following its event in the City.

“Ugandan artist - Sparrow, will create a community inspired street art mural and we encourage families to come along and witness this artwork in the making, as well as enjoy a cultural experience with music and dance performances from local talent,” Victoria said.

Sparrow will use the art form of graffiti to promote change and unify voices, while creating a beautiful space for the community.

The free event, Sanaa North: Street Art Fest, will be hosted at the Elizabeth Downs Shopping Centre on Saturday 2 March from 2pm.
