The Open Design Cape Town Festival showcases innovation, promotes education, and connects communities. One of Cape Town’s most dynamic design events, it is a 12-day citywide experience where everyone is invited to share their experiences of social innovation and tell their stories of how they have used innovation, design and creativity to improve lives. The Open Design Cape Town Festival was conceived as a platform to shine a spotlight on businesses, communities and individuals that are using design to change lives – whether their own or those of their staff, residents or neighbours.

Everyone is invited to participate.
