Creative Cape Town App | Mapping the Local Creative Industry

Creative Cape Town App


With a free-to-download app that was launched on June 25, Creative Cape Town (a programme of the Cape Town Partnership) has set out to virtually map the local creative industries in the Mother City.


Only a week after launching, the app is already filled with creative businesses and individuals who have registered as users to upload their details, geographical locations and examples from their portfolios to the searchable directory. While connecting creatives to clients and each other, the Creative Cape Town app also helps the broader public gain access to the creative sector in Cape Town. Making its debut as the first ever dedicated mobile events portal for the local creative community, another component of the app is an events feed featuring creative and cultural activities.


The app is one of the Cape Town Partnership’s nine official World Design Capital projects and has been developed in partnership with local agency Domino Digital.


Sign up to the directory and download the app for IOS – keep an eye out for the Android version coming soon. Some elements of the app, such as the directory, will also be available on the Creative Cape Town website.
