Arts on Main in Johannesburg CBD is Maboneng Precinct’s pioneering development and the heart of this lively neighbourhood, converted from historic warehouses and industrial buildings into artist studios, galleries and quirky shops. 

The complex houses the studio space of leading contemporary artist William Kentridge as well as a number of other artist studios and gallery spaces, including David Krut Projects and Bookstore. 

On Sundays Arts on Main hosts Market on Main, a lively and stylish shopping and eating destination for locally produced design items, vintage clothing and a wide variety of food options. It's also the day to join the salsa dancers on the rooftop of Canteen, the courtyard restaurant. 

Above the ground floor is ‘I wasshotin Joburg :)’ a store set up to teach former street children photography skills. Buy their beaded picture frames and photographic work emblazoned on a range of gift items.
