The 2017 Architecture Sans Frontiere’s Change by Design programme took place in Cape Town in support of the Development Action Group (DAG)’s work with their Active Citizens Programme on 3 specific sites: Kensington, Khayalitsha and Oude Moulen. 1to1 was brought on as a project partner to support in the studio facilitation and methodology support.
The workshops’s goals were to support grassroots movements with strategic tools in action-research, spatial enumeration and strategy building across the grassroots members stakeholder and beneficiary groups.
The workshop ran for 2 weeks and employed an iterative action research methodology to support the unique needs of each site with the workshop participants and DAG. 1to1 supported by hosting the Challenging Practice teaching with DAG’s Active Citizens programme before the 2 week workshop.
The result of the two week process was a set of grounded spatial research that was intended to support the grassroots leadership’s future engagement with the City of Cape Town. Each group developed a small visual summary of the research in a shared graphic language that was presented back to a large stakeholder group at the district 6 Museum in Cape Town.
At this feedback session each local leadership group shared their findings from the workshop and hosted a small game that was designed by the ASF workshop team as a means to not only share the feedback from each site, but build a dialogue between local leaders and the workshop participants which included City of Cape Town Officials, other NGO’s and other grassroots organisations.
