Organizer

Open Design Festival is a 12-day city-wide festival. It is one of the most dynamic and diverse design-focused festivals on the Cape Town calendar. The festival is an interactive platform that attracts participants from across diverse demographics and communities. Most of the Open Design events are free to enter, ensuring that people from all walks of life can participate, taking design innovation to the people.

 

 


Hosted by

Culture Connect SA is the only art and design tour specialist in Southern Africa, offering both public and commissioned tours.

We select the best galleries, landmarks, collections, studios and townships to visit, depending on what you are after. Often these are unknown and closed to the public. There are opportunities to meet experts, artists and inspiring South Africans from all walks of life.

Kate Crane Briggs started Culture Connect in 2012, inspired by the huge beauty, creativity, expertise and cultural diversity in South Africa. These can be hard, and sometimes dangerous, to find and visit. We are based in Rosebank in Cape Town but curate art experiences in Johannesburg and Pretoria too.
