About the event:

TALK100 Session One: 10:00 – 11:30  

Social design, rebranding communities like the Cape Flats and celebrating local change makers, innovators and entrepreneurs

Join us for a fascinating morning with inspirational people who are passionate about creating a more inclusive society and changing people’s perceptions and preconceived ideas, using their creative skills and experiences to do so.

Speakers for TALK100 Session One:

  • Danielle Ehrlich from True Story Studio: In her talk ‘Designing Moments that Matter’ Danielle uncovers ways in which she has used her human-centered design approach to create meaningful multi-sensory experiences, activations and events that encourage people to connect to themselves, each other, their environments and to what a brand, idea or concept is all really all about. It’s a new way of marketing and a new way of working and thinking;  and is becoming more and more relevant in the global landscape,  where authentic connection in the real-world is becoming more and more challenging.
  • Talliard-Sister Duo from Made in Everywhere is passionate about rebranding the Cape Flats and to highlight the unique talents from these communities
  • Lizl Naude, owner and founder of Lilly Loompa Furniture Design Company – see bio further below
  • Davis Ndungu, founder and owner of Recycled Flip-flops PTY Ltd – see bio further below
  • Gwendolyn Meyer – exhibit producer of the Food Revolution Exhibition, will share the fascinating story behind the collaboration between Sustainability Institute, the Centre for Complex Systems in Transition, Stellenbosch University and the SouthernAfrica Food Lab

 

  • Gwendolyn Meyer is a photographer, graphic designer, researcher and artist with a BFA from the California College of Arts in Oakland, California, 2004 and a Masters in Philosophy from the Sustainability Institute, Stellenbosch University, South Africa, 2016. Her interests lie in the intersections between people, place and culture. Her work investigates the agency of images, to tell stories, to activate ideas and create knowledge, to amplify and make things visible. She has a particular interest in the collaborations between the arts and sciences.
