In July 2017, ASF-UK partnered with Development Action Group (DAG) and 1-1 Agency in Cape Town to facilitate a Change by Design workshop to develop ‘Tools and Tactics’ for community led development across three neighbourhoods in Cape Town. Read the workshop blog here: CBD 2017 Cape Town Blog.
The workshop’s goals were to support grassroots movements with strategic tools in action-research, spatial enumeration and strategy building across the grassroots members stakeholder and beneficiary groups. The workshop engaged various parties including civil society organisations working across the city and community-based organisations within the three neighbourhoods.
The result of the two-week process was a set of grounded spatial research that was intended to support the grassroots leadership’s future engagement with the City of Cape Town. Each group developed a small visual summary of the research in a shared graphic language that was presented back to a large stakeholder group at the district 6 Museum in Cape Town.
