Creative Week Cape Town showcases creativity in design, music, film, theatre, business, innovation, digital media, fine arts and crafts in Cape Town.


Creative Week Cape Town started as a legacy event for Cape Town’s World Design Capital 2014 bid. Inaugurated in September 2010, it aims to strengthen the local creative community by providing a platform on which local creative and innovative industries can showcase their work. This initiative builds on Creative Cape Town’s work communicating, supporting and facilitating the development of the creative and knowledge economy in the central city of Cape Town.


Creative Week Cape Town will run from 15 – 23 September 2012. It will take place during the judging and awarding of the Loerie Awards – South Africa’s premier advertising, communication, design and experiential media awards. The Loerie Awards ceremonies will bring Creative Week to a close on Saturday 22 and Sunday 23 September at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC). For the first time the Pendoring Awards, which celebrate and encourage the use of Afrikaans advertising, will be part of Creative Week and will be held on 21 September.


Events can be staged anywhere in Cape Town. The Fringe: Cape Town’s Design and Innovation District will again host a number of events during 2012.


Creative Week Cape Town is a user-generated event, which means that events are independently organised by participants – and that means you. Creative Week Cape Town events will be promoted on this site, in the mainstream media and in niche publications, including those of Creative Cape Town and its partners.

Creative Week Cape Town invites individuals and organisations involved in all aspects of Cape Town’s creative life – education, arts, design, innovation, advertising, music and service organisations – to participate. Events may include, but are not limited to, lectures, presentations, demonstrations and networking. The format is open to interpretation, so if you have an idea, turn it into an event.
