Infecting The City (ITC) is a vibrant and innovative annual public arts festival that takes place in the City of Cape Town. The Festival strives to bring exceptional, socially-engaged performance and visual art out of theatres and galleries and into the communal spaces of Cape Town’s Central Business District – transforming the city centre into an outdoor venue, where art is free and accessible to everyone.

Infecting The City 2015 is scheduled for 9–14 March. Information regarding the participating artists and artworks will be released incrementally until the programme is finalised on 15 February. Watch this space for regular Festival updates!
