Now is its second year, Aluta Nova encourages a museum going culture amongst young people by honoring history and heritage through contemporary culture. The festival offers a variety of cultural activities that cater for a diverse audience.

“Joburg is a melting pot of cultures, and our museums provide some the richest heritage treasures at the heart of the city. Museums are some of the creative and cultural industries which have been hardest hit by the COVID 19 regulations. This festival creates opportunities for youth in creative SMMEs and gives them a voice and place in history through meaningful museum programmes that are relevant to current and topical issues.”, Says Head Curator at the James Hall Museum Gaisang Sathekge

There will be guided museum tours, bus rides in the 1952 London bus, theatre performances, food, and craft markets throughout the day.  A live music line-up will keep visitors warm as the day matures.  The compelling music line-up will include live performances by Joburg’s top and upcoming talent. Acts such as Urban Village, Rams, Kid Fonque, , Avant Garde Troupé, Phatstoki and Bonj to name a few.

Entrance is free but online registration is compulsory!
