25 FEBRUARY 2013
On 28 February 2013, OPEN STREETS CAPE TOWN will host its second Walk&Talk event along Albert Road, Woodstock, starting at the Old Biscuit Mill at 17.30 pm. We ask the question: Woodstock has a community rich with social networks and local businesses, what would happen if the streets were more open to people?
Walk&Talk Albert Road builds on the success of our first Walk&Talk, Bree Street, in January, where OPEN STREETS CAPE TOWN engaged with residents, planners and streets activists on issues of mobility, safety, community integration and new infrastructure, and particularly the role of streets in improving Cape Town's public spaces.
OPEN STREETS CAPE TOWN is a community of volunteers with expertise in transport, urban planning, cycling, skateboarding, social development and marketing. Walk&Talk Albert Road is hosted in partnership with the Woodstock Community Outreach Forum.
The aim of the Walk&Talk Series 2013 is to compile our findings and build a better understanding of the challenges faced in different parts of the city. OPEN STREETS CAPE TOWN will distribute this information to all interested parties, to create greater awareness of how streets can better serve residents and businesses, and to encourage the participation of all who use Cape Town's streets.
OPEN STREETS CAPE TOWN is part of the international movement to transform streets into more inclusive public places for city residents. The local initiative advocates for the adoption of Open Streets principles and encourages residents and businesses to contribute to making Cape Town a great city for all.
Where: Old Biscuit Mill, Woodstock
When: Thursday, 28 February, 17:30- 19:30p.m.
