Entrance to what was once the Hewat Teacher’s Training College (now the College of Cape Town), Thornton Road, Athlone, Cape Town. The building accommodates one branch of the CHR’s Factory of the Arts. The other is located at the St Philips Church building in Chapel Street, District Six. The factory is aimed at re-energising, and establishing a foothold for, Athlone and District Six as places and spaces of cultural and aesthetic production. Photograph: Sam Longford
