Arts On Main

Arts on Main was once the offices of a former Johannesburg Mayor. Today the historic warehouses and industrial buildings that surround it have been converted into a lively and stylish inner-city neighbourhood known as Maboneng.

The complex houses artist studios as well as a number of gallery spaces, including David Krut Projects and Bookstore. On Sundays Arts on Main hosts Market on Main, a popular shopping and eating destination offering locally produced design items, vintage clothing and a wide variety of tasty food choices. On Sundays you can also join the salsa dancers on the rooftop of Canteen, the courtyard restaurant. Above the ground floor of the complex is I wasshotin Joburg :) a store set up to teach former street children photography skills and selling their work emblazoned on a range of items including notebooks, T-shirts, fridge magnets and other creative gift items. See individual links for opening and closing times as stores may differ.
