CHALE WOTE 2014 begins TODAY

After waiting for days, weeks, months, heck it's been a year since the last one, our favourite (and sadly only major) street art festival begins today!
The Chale Wote Street Art Festival 2014 is an eclectic mix of music, art, fashion, poetry, film and some much more creative faboulousity (if that even exists)

They'll be holding a film festival showcasing what’s new, hot, fresh and upcoming on the continent and beyond, by talented African directors, from all over too.

Here are a few images from last year.
