EVENT \\ Tracksides: An Urban Art Event

Tracksides is a multi-layered event showcasing local arts. The urban art event features the Graffiti SA book launch, sketch battles, customisation, live graffiti time lapse, group exhibitions, and more.

The title refers to an area on the fringe that lies to the side of the mainstream. This largely unknown area is a space where new styles and artists are found and is the leading edge of creative movement. It also references Open Plan Studio’s location on Station Drive, beside Durban’s main train tracks.
