Streetopia Obs Supporters
To create Streetopia takes a village - and that village is Obs!
It’s with great thanks that we acknowledge the support of businesses and civic organisations in helping us to make Streetopia happen. You can identify official supporters by the sticker you see below – when next you’re strolling around our hood and spot the Supporter sticker, pop in and say hi, and thank them for helping to make the event happen.
If you know of anyone in the area that would like to support Streetopia, please let them know about our Donate page, thanks.
Participating Venue Info
If your business (bar, restaurant or cafe) or art studio is located in Obs and has played a part in Streetopia events over the last 5 years, you’re invited to host performers and activities, and have these added to the streamed content that will be broadcast via our website between 10am and 6pm on the day.
If your venue has an existing performance stage or space, and you’re looking for performers, the event team is able to assist by providing suggestions of musicians and performers that would be suitable for your plans on the day. If however you, as in previous years, already have plans to play host to invited artists and performers, you’re encouraged to go ahead with those plans – and can have your streamed content added to the broadcast on the day.
On the day, two stream ‘rooms’ will feature activities and performance live and direct from venues in Obs between 10am and 6pm (ie: over the usual event period), with the confirmed rosters of performance promoted via Streetopia’s website and social media channels.
HOW WOULD YOU BENEFIT AS A PARTICIPATING OBS VENUE?
By playing host to music, art or performance during the course of the day on Saturday 28th November, and by discussing and confirming the activities that your venue has in store, our event team will be able to list these activities on the obs.streetopia.co.za website, and by generating awareness of your activities through posts on its social media channels.
If and when you do confirm your venue’s participation, information will be provided to you about the #hashtags to make use of, and when any content related to your participation would be published on the relevant website and social media channels, in order for you and your team (and fans) to make the most of supporting the content’s visibility online – all of which would help to create more awareness of your venue, and generate footfall and sales on the day.

National Arts Council
In 2020, we’re very happy to announce that the National Arts Council is our e-Topia event funding partner! Through the support of the NAC, our event will be able to facilitate the range of music, performance and art based activities that will form a significant portion of the event schedule. These activities will be hosted at a range of arts workshops and venues in Observatory, as well as in the Northern Cape and Gauteng – and each will be broadcast here on our website.
Many thanks to the NAC for their support!
Civic Organisation Partners
To stage our event in a residential neighbourhood could not happen without the support of civic organisations who assist with logistical, infrastructural and municipal event needs such as waste management, traffic and safety co-ordination, road closures, sanitation and many other aspects. Below are civic partners whose support the event team are very grateful for:
These are the guys that help Obs to be safer, cleaner and smarter – and we owe a great debt of gratitude to their team for assisting Streetopia with elements such as logistics, snaitation and street cleaning – and also for help with keeping the event area secure during the setup, the event duration, and afterward.
Observatory Civic Association
Performing the role of an interface between the Obs community and municipal and governmental organisations, the OCA have been of great help to Streetopia in assisting to alert the business community to the event and ways in which it can be supported.
City of Cape Town
Facilitating our event’s permit and providing support in the form of essential event services such as Traffic officers on the day, the City is a partner in Streetopia and in the continued growth of our event.
