Take to the streets with a tour of the city with a uniquely street culture twist. We’ll head out on skateboards to trace the origins and early history of Joburg, focussing on areas like Marshalltown, Ferreirasdrop and Newtown. It kicks off from Curiocity HQ and we’ll start off with a short skate lesson for newbies.
