#cocreateDESIGN FESTIVAL is proud to be a partner of the UNESCO Creative Cities Network with Cape Town paving the way as the first city in Africa to be named a UNESCO City of Design.

The #cocreateDESIGN FESTIVAL is a new initiative of The Netherlands Consulate General which aims to celebrate and examine the power of design to tackel current socio-economic and environmental challenges within an African context. In collaborations with The Craft and Design Institute and Future Cape Town, the first edition of the initiative will be hosted under the theme "Beyond the Crisis". The festival will take place 22-24 February 2018 in the East City Precinct.
