South Africans love their country. And what better way to celebrate it than to improve on it?
Own, love and improve you street. This is the mantra pushing the Your Street Gauteng Challenge forward. Design Indaba has launched the campaign in Johannesburg and hopes to see Jozi designers and creative submitting their ideas.
The challenge is about using creativity to transform the city and encouraging positive social change in the designer’s immediate surroundings. “We see the Your Street Gauteng Challenge as a unique platform for encouraging the use of design and creativity to further enhance the urban experience” said Ravi Naidoo, Design Indaba’s founder.
Desing Indaba have partnered with The Gauteng Tourism Authority for this campaign; CEO Dawn Robertson says “we see this as an ideal opportunity for Gauteng designers to use their creativity to aid social upliftment in the province”.
There is up to R250 000 to be won between the winner and three second-place winners. The prize money will go towards implementing the respective ideas on how to improve their streets.
