OPEN DESIGN Ciudad del Cabo abre el 13 de agosto

La segunda edición de DISEÑO ABIERTO Cape Town will take place from 13 – 23 August 2014.
DISEÑO ABIERTO Cape Town brings together all the design disciplines to remove the exclusive stigma associated with design. The full and varied programme encourages design practitioners, managers, media, educators, students and members of the public to share design concepts with each other – and particularly with young people – to develop and inspire a future generation of designers.

El tema de este año es Design is for Change. The event will feature curated exhibitions, performances, seminars, demonstrations, launches and open studios to share the transformative power of design by talking about it, reflecting on it and engaging with it. By exchanging information, by sharing design, we can grow ideas, practices and markets both locally and globally.
Por Design is for Change?
This year, South Africa celebrates 20 years of democracy, a milestone that showcases the country’s evolution. Change has been pivotal to the growth and development of the nation. Design is integral to making change happen: from developing educational tools and technologies for children and mobile apps that create access to quality healthcare, to empowering people to think laterally, and find new and innovative ways to approach business and entrepreneurship.
