The People's Plan for Princess Vlei

The community from Grassy Park in the Cape Flats successfully opposed the development of a shopping mall on Princess Vlei – an ecologically and culturally significant wetland area. We helped them visually articulate their plan for rehabilitating their public space as an alternative to the mall development.

This pro bono project as part of Black Hat & Nimbus helped address the inequality that exists around communication and expression – the private sector has marketing teams and design agencies to ‘sell’ their agenda, while communities (particularly disadvantaged ones) have very limited communication options.
