One of the first collective artists’ studios in South Africa, the Bag Factory launched in 1991 in an old factory in Fordsburg, a colourful, predominantly Muslim and Indian neighbourhood, on the edge of the inner-city. The building contains 18 studios and since its inception The Bag Factory has continually strived to provide space for local visual artists from disadvantaged backgrounds. While the Bag Factory functions primarily as an artist studio, pop-up art exhibitions, installations and cultural evenings are also hosted here.
