The Bat Centre - Review

Do take a moment to get over your pangs of disappointment that this place has nothing to do with Bruce Wayne. With a name like that, what else can you expect? Well, you can expect the Bartel Arts Trust, an urban community art and cultural centre that focuses of promoting the works of emerging artists. The exhibits here are usually brilliantly original and innovative, breaking traditional art boundaries. Most of the exhibits reflect the heavy Zulu, Indian and Western influence on south Africa’s heritage. Apart from paintings, you’ll also get music, dance and spoken word poetry. There’s a lovely coffee bar overlooking the bay, a nightspot with live music and an excellent souvenir shop.
