On the cover of the March issue of City Views we give you a taste of what is to come during the free public arts festival Infecting the City from 11 to 16 March. The featured work, Scrabbling, is based on the popular word game Scrabble and invites audience and passersby to express themselves and collectively create a temporary artwork. Creator Guto Bussab is the founder and owner of MUTI, a parent brand for Muti Films (film production), Muti Photography (commercial photography) and TheMutiGallery art gallery). City Views traded letters with the artist.
