  • A central vision in line with CCDS which includes areas from Saltriver to Moullie Point ….
  • We have 3 areas of support of which design is our central focus. We recognise design in its broadest form not simply in aesthetic terms and the promotion of this sector is the bulk of our work because of the recognition we give it for positioning the city as a innovater and in creating economic opportunities. We support cultural tourism and recognise the central importance of history and memory in healing our city’s divisions
  • History – this what they told us they wanted when interviewed around 40 different people in the industry Information – advocacy - Platform? Events, business opportunities, venues, marketing - “Audience development”/At time little known of the Creative Industry Sector – we did a mapping – discovered around 700 incl developmental type orgs Ran pilot projects – Goemarati – public space concerts in town and township, website and others Employed last year full time – Design Indaba Expo – events in city – understand the CTP and CCID
  • Our work is underpinned by research through which we discovered that there are 1 000 creative economy entities in the city centre with the majority being design orientated and more than half being small business. Most entities have been in existence for over 3 years so it’s a robust economy and its growing with great opportunity for job creation because such industries are labour absorptive. We have taken a decision to focus on design strategically as a result of this study and have relationships with Design Indaba, CCDI, The Loeries, and CPUT as part of this strategic focus
