With only two months until the July opening of Department of Design, the Consul General in Cape Town Bonnie Horbach officially announced the project to South Africans.
“Department of Design is where we can talk to one one another about solutions for Cape Town solutions in the area of water management, sustainable development and logistics,” she said.
With a living programme of workshops, lectures, round tables and events, Department of Design programme will be the result of a collaborative effort between Dutch and South African partners.
“I don’t want to impose our solutions, I want to let the Capetonians and Africans talk about what they need and design solutions together,” said Horbach.
“I to invite all Capetonians to come to Department of Design. Come for a cup of coffee in our pop-up café or work on your lap top and with our free WiFi. And take advantage of this space where discussion, workshops and lectures will take place.”
