100 GOOD IDEAS: Celebrating 20 Years of Democracy (#WDC212) is one of World Design Capital Cape Town’s 460 projects which aim to improve the Mother City through transformative design.
Created by Brendon Bell- Roberts, the book contains some of the most creative and innovative “IDEAS” to have come out of SA over the past 20 years. 100 GOOD IDEAS is a celebration of creativity, sustainability and positive change, underpinned by the spirit of Ubuntu and the will to do good, said Bell-Roberts.
“From iconic people and worthwhile innovations to inspiring designs and useful trends, 100 GOOD IDEAS shows just why African creativity is a distinctive, valuable resource. What makes this book a unique project is that it encapsulates all of four WDC themes.”
Cape Town Design NPC selected 12 IDEAS from the book and asked the contributing individuals in a short film,
“What if you reimagined Cape Town 20 years from now through a transformative design lens?”
Theo Ndindwa and Siphiwe Ngwenya from the Arts Township International said:,“In 20 years’ time we would want everything in Cape Town to work as one”, while Misha Teasdale, co-founder of Greenpop, hopes the city will be a place that is thriving, socially inclusive and abundant on many levels.
Bell-Roberts added: “100 GOOD IDEAS has the potential to turn good ideas into great visions, to be the Riviera of Africa and a thriving hub of world-class innovation. Our hope for World Design Capital 2014 is that we collaborate to realise this during, as well as after, this year of transformative design.”
