There are exciting plans for WDC 2014 afoot. Infestation ‘s Design App will give visitors something more than just the usual wooden giraffe to take home and it will tell our story while  the Maboneng Townships Arts Experience focuses on turning homes in townships, namely Gugulethu into art galleries, thereby bringing visitors into the settlements and instilling a sense of pride in the homeowners/gallery owners.

District Six Museum plans on highlighting memorialisation through art and design for a new generation and the Open House initiative will demystify Cape Town’s amazing buildings to the public.
