WITH Cape Town having been named as the World Design Capital in 2014, the design community and a healthy mix of academics and NGOs are collaborating to initiate a pioneering design-led project this weekend in Khayelitsha.
“We are expecting a dynamic mix of community stakeholders, government, academia, the business community and the design community,” said dynamic design educator Bruce Snaddon, a senior lecturer in the graphic design department at the faculty of informatics and design at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology.
