Pausing the Palette and Marketplace: Benoni Art Route and Bunny Park Market Respond to National Lockdown

In a solemn reflection of our communal responsibility and the shared struggles brought by the global pandemic, we chronicle the impact of COVID-19 on the cultural heartbeat of Benoni. As President Cyril Ramaphosa announced a 21-day national lockdown starting the stroke of midnight on March 26, 2020, artistic expressions and community gatherings felt an immediate ripple effect.

A Halt on Cultural Displays

Sheina Razack reported in the Benoni City Times, on March 27, 2020, that the anticipated monthly showcase of local creativity—the Benoni Art Route’s display at CR Swart Park, initially set for March 29—was postponed. This collective, vibrant with the talents and smiles of members like Larry Mervitz, Alistair Gillford, and Marcia Goodchild, was set upon a momentary pause in the wake of the lockdown declaration.

The Bonnie Art Route chairperson, Larry Mervitz, affirms this decision, though with a hope to soon resume the celebration of Benoni’s artistic vigor that typically adorns the pathways and spaces of CR Swart Park.

A Pledge to Precision

In the floods of information that this pandemic era has brought, a beacon of reliable journalism remains more critical than ever. The Benoni City Times makes a particular note of the battle against misinformation—an undertaking of sincere importance. Caxton Local Media, the publishers behind the local news provider, is dedicated to sifting through the avalanche of information, distinguishing between the chaff of untruths and the grains of verified facts.

To uphold this standard, they have established a national task team to ensure readers are informed with credible, fact-checked reports on COVID-19 developments. This adherence to a strict pre-publication fact-checking protocol is not just a service but a duty to the community it serves.

Awaiting the Reawakening

As we await the official word on when the colorful array of the Benoni Art Route and the beloved market within the Bunny Park might return, we hold tightly to the threads of community and creativity that bind us. The resumption of these events will signal not just a return to normalcy but a celebration of resilience that has carried us through unprecedented times.
