Cape Town has over 10 major annual design-related events and many smaller similar events throughout the year. Over 20 design education and research institutions offer a range of world class training which supplies the local and international market with resources. Cape Town continues to be committed to democratising design; strengthening the local and international design-ecosystem; embedding design-led innovation into the City administration; and using design as a problem-solving tool for urban challenges, to play a significant, positive role in shaping the lives of the people who call it home.

An exciting cultural district is the Langa Cultural Precinct, a vibrant cultural location, accessible and welcoming to residents and visitors alike. It starts at Washington Street made up of the Guga S’Thebe Arts and Culture Centre, the Old Pass Office Museum and Post Office, and Marikana Park.
