Trends at Freeworld

What started as a once-off charity fundraiser, the Freeworld Design Centre’s Trend Talk is so popular that it has become a quarterly institution. Nearing the end of winter, coming up for spring, the next one is on Wednesday 8 August 2012.

Besides the Plascon 2013 Colour Forecast, speakers include a range of top design and media professionals. Michael Udell of Punk will share bright new advertising from the recent Cannes Festival. Chef Jacques Erasmus of Hemelhuijs will serve up delicious new ideas for food. Justin Hartman of Social Code will discuss social media. Ricky Lee Gordon of /A WORD OF ART will speak about a new, world-class mural walking tour for Cape Town. Other speakers include Dinika Govender of TEDxUCT, SIFE and FutureCapeTown and Source Interior Brand Architects.

The Trend Talk 3 will run from 2pm and 4pm. The event asks for a donation of R20 or more at the door in aid of design charity Rock Girl. There is no advance booking and knowing how popular these talks are, we say get there early!

The Freeworld Design Centre is located at 71 Waterkant St, Cape Town.
