Salt River Street Art with blind guide

August 17 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

R400

Winston Fani, Cape Town’s (and Africa’s?) first blind, qualified tourist guide, describes himself as “I’m not disabled. I’m differently abled.” Born partially sighted, Winston lost his eye sight completely when he was 11. He grew up in Gqeberha, moved to Cape Town to be with “the love of his life”, Busisiwe who is also blind.

Fani’s tour includes the murals which are favourites, ranging from those at Community House by local artists to ones created during the International Public Art Festival. Some have captions in braille and QR codes, thanks to a partnership with  Cape Town Tourism and Baz-Art.

Salt River

R300 per person paying pre 7 August; otherwise R400; five free places for differently abled Culture Connectors

To book kate@cultureconnectsa.com +27 (0)72 377 8014.

This is a first for Culture Connect SA; I hope that people like me who are sighted will come to hear Winston’s knowledge and stories; it will inspiring. I am deliberately not going to wear my glasses. Perhaps come blindfolded with a friend to guide you, better still come if you are blind or partially sighted.

If you would like your private private tour by Winston, book it with Wendy Purdon, AWOL Tours; info@awoltours.co.za Wendy sent me the images when Winston took 36 partially sighted Norwegian tourists on a street art walk in Salt River, 2o23.
