Cape Town’s image as a premier holiday destination in 2014 continues to grow, especially after becoming World Design Capital with a year-long event plan to push the creative limits of the Mother City.
Cape Town was successful in beating over 50 other cities who took part in the bi-annual award bestowed by the International Council for Societies of Industrial Design. With a central theme of: “Live Design. Transform Life” which focuses on the role that design can play in social transformation in the city, Cape Town has set the foundation for the development of an inspiring programme of World Design Capital-themed events and projects.
The Official Programme for World Design Capital Cape Town 2014 has been curated from 1253 projects spanning the city, province and beyond after a 10-month long period of public submissions. Of these submissions around 450 projects have been officially recognized to form part of the programme this year.
These projects cover initiatives from concepts and ideas to newly hatched projects and mature businesses. Each attempting to capture the indomitable South African spirit that sees something made from nothing. All of the projects are united by their use of design and design-led thinking to help drive the social and economic change that is sort after in Cape Town by using the very building blocks of which the Mother City is comprised.
Along with the various programs running throughout the year, several signature events will also be taking place including a WDC Design Gala in February, a Design Policy Conference in October and a Cities Exhibition in November. The year of design will end with the eventual Convocation Ceremony where the official ‘hand-over’ of the WDC title from one city to the next takes place.
On the schedule for January is the Mobile Health Hackathon where the Inclusive Healthcare Innovation Initiative is giving participants the opportunity to create and innovate in building mobile and technology applications addressing pressing health challenges.
Aimed at exposing participants to the role enabling technology can play in transforming healthcare delivery, the event is set to take place from the 24th till the 26th of January. Teams will be tasked with producing a workable prototype which can be showcased and matched with a sustainable business model, before presenting their work at the Inclusive Healthcare Innovation Summit on 30 January 2014.
