  • Introduce Rashiq Fataar and Future Cape Town:Visions of the future of the city have been disseminated through the media of literature and film and through the communications of futurologists, utopians and dystopians of every variety and of each epoch. In these visions, technology and the future of the city are always intertwined and that is a necessity if the city is to become a concrete reality.The vision that impacted me was Cape Town’s Olympic bid for the 2004 Games, at the Age of 10. An image of the Olympic Park which appeared in the newspaper. Cape Town imagining its future, a plan, wanting to be relevant, better, and in the international spotlight. Until 2 years ago, the 2010 FIFA World Cup inspired me to think about what Cape Town could be without a deadline, without an event to define its brand. There was a gap in the debate and discussion.Along came twitter, which became an outlet for my visions, thoughts and aspirationsSoon a following grew, and more and more people become attached to the brand, and were drawn to the topics and discussions. You could say in some way, we were creating a movement, and the “authorities”, like the Mayor, were listening.It has grown beyond twitter to our website, futurecapetown.com, and to other projects, some of which I will share with you.
