As Spring signals new beginnings and heightened levels of creativity and inspiration, Builders took advantage of the buoyancy of the new season by hosting its first #BuildersArtFest 09 September.
“This festival is a celebration of all things creative. And what better way to fuel inspiration for the new season than with art and music and all things fun and beautiful,” said Elzette van Niekerk, Builders communications manager.
Held at Moon and Sixpence in Muldersdrift, just outside Johannesburg, the art festival encouraged creative expression with activities ranging from spray paint provided by Rust‐oleum/Spray mate; arts and crafts provided by Heritage, Xpress graphics and Unlimited ideas; and DIY paints by Fired Earth and Harris paint brushes, as well as loads of entertainment and activities for children. Other Builders suppliers included Swartland and Emstel Graphics who supplied doors for graffiti artists, and mirrors and frames, respectively. The festive ambience was cultivated by live music.
“Builders wants to help people build better lives, together. We created this art festival as a platform for our customers and stakeholders to experience and interact with our products in an educational and fun way to show that whatever you want, or need to do, to live better, we have a solution to help you get it done,” explained Van Niekerk. “We raise the bar a little higher and are relentless in finding innovative, quality, branded products and services to ensure that our customers are always satisfied and come back for more. And we provide freedom of choice through our extensive range.”
So, what was the most popular activity of the day? “There was so much choice and all the stalls were buzzing, but I think the most popular title must go to the burger‐making stand. Yes, South Africans love their meat and appreciated the opportunity to DIY their unique burgers,” continued Van Niekerk.
Builders is South Africa’s one‐stop destination for building materials, DIY and home improvement products and services across more than 100 stores in the country and on the continent plus a wide range of over 20 000 products are available online.
