Vote with ‘Your City Idea’ on Church Square

When: 17 May 2013

Where: Church Square (Google Map)

After another satisfactory run at Cape Town International Airport, the bright yellow ballot box will  return to the CBD area where citizens can come and take a minute or two of their time to vote on two urban issues. On Friday 17 May, members of the public can make their way to Church Square, situated at Spin Street and Parliament Street between 9am and 3pm .

The box will display two urban questions, with each question providing four options for voters to choose from. The options will be displayed as images or future visions for Cape Town, presented in four pigeon holes.

This will be the fourth time the installation will be set up around the Cape Town district. Future Cape Town will be working in collaboration with HOTT 3 Dimensional Marketing and Cape Town Partnership for the latest installation setup.

The installation was initially designed as a temporary urban intervention as part of the build-up to the upcoming Spaza Urban Innovation Festival during Cape Town’s year as World Design Capital in 2014.
