Meet the Makers: Atang Tshikare

In the first edition of Creative Cape Town's Meet the Makers series you meet Atang Tshikare, a Cape Town maker and former Design Indaba Emerging Creative.

Meet the Makers, a Creative Cape Town project, offers a glimpse into the processes, spaces and personalities of local creative practitioners - from architects to educators, designers to dancers, chefs to singers.

Through studio visits and a documentary film series, Meet the Makers provides a holistic overview of Cape Town's creative industries, exploring how creativity and design are perceived in a local context with global connections. Meet the Makers is an officially recognised World Design Capital 2014 project.

In the first edition of this series, meet Atang Tshikare: illustrator, designer and customiser.

I believe in imagination as the most absolute thing I need to have in everyday life, says Tshikare.

Creative Cape Town, a programme of the Cape Town Partnership, communicates, supports and facilitates the development of the creative economy in Cape Town.
