Less than two weeks until we begin our Change by Design workshop in South Africa! April 2, 2015
Less than two weeks until we begin our Change by Design workshop in South Africa!
This year we are focusing on Cape Town, in the inner city district of Woodstock, where housing rights and gentrification have become a hugely pertinent issue.
Through a period of intensive fieldwork utilising participatory design tools, we aim to generate strategies which address the issue of marginalised groups being priced out of the city centre; a phenomenon which can be seen in urban areas across the globe. The methodology will centre on the low-income rental market, assessing tenure and affordability in order to develop an understanding of the range of experiences of citizens and ultimately how they can benefit from regeneration processes.
We will work closely with our local partner, Development Action Group, who bring their unique experience in citizen mobilisation, capacity building, research and advocacy to unpack the opportunities for meaningful change.
