Department of Design is officially part of the Third Thursdays Cape Town programme! The event invites guests to explore the East City and its local initiatives. Third Thursdays is the East City edition of First Thursdays Cape Town, and promises an evening of art, culture and great food.
Department of Design will be hosting walking tours of the FLOW landscape, as well as free entry to Thursday evening’s workshops:
- EY Toastmasters invite Capetonians to #cocreateSA through conversation. Using public speaking as a tool for sustainability, EY Toastmasters will focus on Department of Design’s themes Energy and City. The workshop will explore the power of energy transfer through positive human interaction in communal urban spaces.
- A Conversation with Dr Alex Apsan Frediani, he will share some of his work on the potential of urban games to address injustices in the city, especially when applied in contexts of informal settlement upgrading. He will draw on lessons and debates from the field of participatory design and planning and reflect on the series of participatory design workshops run by Architecture Sans Frontières – UK, entitled ‘Change by Design’ which he has been involved with.
- Lady Skollie hosts an interactive paint by numbers that will make you blush. If that doesn’t do the trick, banana installation running in tandem will. Expect to leave empowered, sexually aware and perhaps a little hot and bothered.
Participation: All events and tours are open to the public free of charge.
