This street and those that participated will never be the same. We have now experienced what it could be like if we had streets that embed respect for all of us regardless of who we are and how we move around the city.
For those who missed it, the activities included handball, capoeira, ultimate frisbee, a performance by Cape Town Opera, acroyoga, street art, rollerblading, skateboarding, a bicycle treasure hunt, salsa, tango and other dance, a #prayfornigeria silent display of solidarity, live graffiti display, busking, photo scavenger hunt, a 'shout out corner', a pop-up lounge and many more.
Everyone is talking about Open Streets in Cape Town and we are proud to have facilitated a fun day in the city with the support of the City of Cape Town; but the work only starts here. The dream is big and we want to invite you all to join us in making the next Open Streets in Langa a success.
As an NPO with a small team and very limited resources, we can use all the help we can get. You can be part of the movement by becoming a volunteer, sharing the Open Streets Manifesto, following us on Twitter and Facebook and helping us identify partners to develop a stronger Open Streets programme going forward. Perhaps your organisation would like to partner with us? We are looking for sponsors as well as branding, communications, legal and financial expertise.
If you have photos from Open Streets on Bree that you would like to share with us, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks to Youngblood for the images! Many more to follow.
