The World Design Capital title may have moved on from Cape Town, as it travels to Taipei in 2016 but its influence remains in various legacy programmes that will enhance the creativity of Cape Town for years to come.

These are driven by the City of Cape Town, Western Cape Government, the city’s four tertiary institutions, the Cape Craft & Design Institute (CCDI) and the Cape Town Design Network. It will also persist through the efforts and passion of thousands of people who were involved in the 460+ projects its followers and supporters.

Cape Town Design NPC CEO, Alayne Reesberg, says “World Design Capital marked an important point in Cape Town’s design story. We will now build on the momentum that was started to grow the use of design in our city. Over the coming months WDC 2014’s legacy activities will entail creating a framework to continue showcasing some of the projects as well as building on the design and innovation system.”

“We will continue to expand on what World Design Capital started in 2014. The projects and collaborations that the designation catalysed will contribute towards creating a stronger, more cohesive design ecosystem,” concludes Reesberg.
