Wednesday 15 October – Sunday 19 October, 10 am – 6 pm
Cape Town Stadium, Green Point
MAKE IT NEW is part of a flagship project of World Design Capital (WDC) titled Makers + Thinkers – see. learn. do; which explores relationships and connections across time. Over 100 images from the Western Cape Museums’ archives and objects from antiquity and tradition will be included with contemporary design objects.
The exhibition, featuring the work of over 170 designers and craft producers from all over the Western Cape, will lead visitors through a showcase of contemporary items, exploring local design, and through the layout and product selection it will prompt reflection on the nature of the Western Cape’s current design profile. The showcase will also explore how the Cape’s creative producers of today demonstrate design thinking, innovation and problem solving in a variety of ways, and how they are re-visiting the long established in a totally new way and making it new.
The MAKE IT NEW exhibition is presented by the Cape Craft and Design Institute (CCDI) and sponsored by the Western Cape Department of Cultural Affairs and Sports (DCAS) and Cape Town Design.
