Rashiq Fataar, Director of Future Cape Town, had the great opportunity to introduce the work of Future Cape Town and in particular the WDC 2014 Design Tours.
The Design Tours are walking discussions around the city posing questions to participants throughout the tour. More than a simple statement of facts and history, the walking tours aim to challenge participants to re-imagine the city, giving them the possibility to think in a new way, by making knowledge sharing inclusive, and to build a collective sense of ownership of the city.
FUTURE CAPE TOWN aims to be a year round project using our existing platforms and work including the use of online media, social media, forums, tours, public forums, and exhibitions to promote awareness and dialogue about the power of design as a tool to transform our cities.
