World Design Capital 2014 <h2 class="sectHeading">​​​​​​​​​​​What was the World Design Capital​​​​​​​?</h2><p>Design can transform cities; bridge the gap between creativity and innovation; improve the quality of life in our city; increase public participation; build our economy; and create new ways of thinking. The World Design Capital is a title given every two years to a city that has shown commitment to using design as a tool for social, economic and cultural growth. </p> <span> <div class="notification with-heading dark-copy light-blue bg-light-grey"><div class="graphic with-border"> <i class="info fastfact">​​</i></div><div class="desc"><h4>Fast fact​</h4><p>Cape Town was the first city from the developing world to be selected for the WDC title.</p></div></div></span> <p>The central theme of the WDC 2014 projects and programmes was ‘Live design. Transform life’, and spoke to the following core ideas: </p><ul><li> <strong>AFRICAN INNOVATION: GLOBAL CONVERSATION:</strong> African ideas that speak to the world.</li><li> <strong>BRIDGING THE DIVIDE:</strong> Design that reconnects our city and reconciles our communities.</li><li> <strong>TODAY FOR TOMORROW:</strong> Sustainable solutions for people and planet.</li><li> <strong>BEAUTIFUL SPACE. BEAUTIFUL THINGS: </strong>Inspiring architecture, interiors, food, fashion, jewellery, craft, art and creativity.</li></ul><h2 class="sectHeading">​​​​​​​​​​How did the WDC 2014 benefit our city?</h2><p>The WDC 2014 title allowed us to explore and show how human-focused, design-led thinking creates a more inclusive city. </p><div class="notification with-heading dark-copy light-blue bg-light-grey"><div class="graphic with-border"> <i class="info fastfact">​​</i></div><div class="desc"><h4>Fast fact​</h4><p> Design-led thinking factors in how something will look and work in order to make sure it will benefit everyday life.</p></div></div><p> <strong>Throughout the year creatives, business people, activists and communities were involved in transformative series of activities. During the WDC time we:</strong></p><ul><li>hosted 460 transformative design projects throughout the WDC 2014 year;</li><li>launched a series of co-creation workshops to ensure design touched every one of Cape Town’s 111 wards;</li><li>hosted conferences, conventions, collaborations, challenges, competitions, exhibitions and workshops; and</li><li>developed ways of working with design-led thinking to aid public participation, across our city.</li></ul><h2 class="sectHeading">​​​​​​​​​​WDC Projects​​​​​​​</h2><p>The greatest driver of change and engagement was our WDC projects initiative (remove link and add copy). There are many projects that began before WDC 2014 or are ongoing; these include festivals, public art installations and expos. Most projects have focused on uplifting communities and building participation in various parts of the city, centred on core issues like sustainability, economic growth and cultural identity.</p><p> <strong>Take a look at some of our stand-out art and design-focused projects below. </strong></p><p> <strong>The Maboneng Township Arts experience (#WDC218) </strong>    <br>Beyond 2014: <a href="http://www.maboneng.com/" target="_blank">www.maboneng.com<i class="icon link-external"></i></a> </p><p> <strong>Open Streets (#WDC207) </strong>    <br>Beyond 2014: <a href="http://www.openstreets.co.za/" target="_blank">www.openstreets.co.za<i class="icon link-external"></i></a></p><p> <strong>Design Indaba (#WDC215) </strong>    <br>Beyond 2014: <a href="http://www.designindaba.com/" target="_blank">www.designindaba.com<i class="icon link-external"></i></a></p><p> <strong>Infecting the City (#WDC261) </strong>    <br>Beyond 2014: <a href="http://www.infectingthecity.com/" target="_blank">www.infectingthecity.com<i class="icon link-external"></i></a></p><p> <strong>Cape Town Carnival (#WDC266) </strong>    <br>Beyond 2014: <a href="http://capetowncarnival.com/" target="_blank">capetowncarnival.com<i class="icon link-external"></i></a> </p><p> <strong>​Suidoosterfees (#WDC512) </strong>    <br>Beyond 2014: <a href="http://www.suidoosterfees.co.za/" target="_blank">www.suidoosterfees.co.za<i class="icon link-external"></i></a></p><h2 class="sectHeading">​​​​​​​​​​Tracking its impact​​​​​​​</h2><p> <strong>WDC 2014 lead to: </strong></p><ul><li>collaborations of different skills leading to new ideas, solutions and projects;</li><li>new understanding of design and how it can create social and economic change;</li><li>promotion and support of existing and new projects in the city; and</li><li>increased public participation.</li></ul><p>Download our<a href="http://resource.capetown.gov.za/documentcentre/Documents/Graphics%20and%20educational%20material/World%20Design%20Capital%202014%20Graphic%20Booklet.pdf" target="_blank"> Graphic Booklet</a> for some impressive statistics on how our economy, geography and society has benefited from all of these activities.</p><p> <strong>We have also seen a surge in international collaborations and have been promoted globally as an extraordinary design destination:</strong></p><p> <strong>International Impact</strong></p><ul><li>International collaboration resulting in global skills and knowledge transfer</li><li>Promotion of Cape Town as a design destination</li><li>International networking which created long-term international relationships</li></ul><p>You can read more about our outcomes in our <a href="http://resource.capetown.gov.za/documentcentre/Documents/City%20research%20reports%20and%20review/2014%20World%20Design%20Capital%20outcome%20evaluation.pdf" target="_blank">evaluation document</a>.</p><h2 class="sectHeading">​​​​​​​​​​Beyond 2014​​​​​​​</h2><p>Even though the WDC 2014 year is over, we continue to work to support creative thinking in socially, economically and environmentally conscious ways. </p><p> <strong>#Beyond 2014 and Design+Cape</strong><br> A plan has been put in place that will enable the Cape Craft and Design Institute (CCDI) to undertake the legacy work of WDC Cape Town 2014. </p><p>This initiative kickstarted the #beyond2014 campaign but has become the first phase of the Design+Cape Programme.  As an umbrella platform, Design+Cape creates space to showcase design initiatives in the region.</p><p> <strong>Follow Design+Cape:</strong><br>On Twitter: <a href="https://twitter.com/designcape" target="_blank">@DesignCape<i class="icon link-external"></i></a></p><p> <strong>Sign up for the Design+Cape newsletter:</strong><br>Visit <a href="http://www.ccdi.org.za/?DCS" target="_blank">www.ccdi.org.za<i class="icon link-external"></i></a> to sign up for the monthly Design+Cape newsletter.</p><p> <strong>The newsletter will enable you to:</strong></p><ul><li>be a part of the developing WDC 2014 database;</li><li>be plugged in with what is happening in design in Cape Town;</li><li>learn about design-led thinking and how it can improve products and services; and</li><li>be exposed to projects and businesses that are using design to deliver economic return.</li></ul><p> <strong>Visit our pop up shop!</strong><br> The space, formerly used to promote WDC 2014, has been given to the <a href="http://www.ccdi.org.za/" target="_blank">CCDI<i class="icon link-external"></i>​​</a> to be used by the community as a rotating pop up shop.
