“Today, social innovation is as important and maybe more important than,techno-scientific and business innovations. Because these social innovations tend to be grass roots efforts developed from the bottom up, the top needs to help cultivate them or risk crushing them. This danger exists because these grass-roots efforts are currently not recognized for their potential in quite the same way as are other, more established types of innovation.” – Prof. Ezio Manzini

Open Design Cape Town Festival
“OPEN DESIGN Cape Town [ODCT] brings together all the design disciplines to remove the exclusive stigma associated with design. The full and varied programme encourages design practitioners, managers, media, educators, students and members of the public to share design concepts with each other – and particularly with young people – to develop and inspire a future generation of designers.” – ODCT
