Spring break

In a joint celebration of spring and Women's Day, Freeworld Design Centre presents a creativity-filled programme.

With spring almost in the air and Women's Day less than a week away, Freeworld Design Centre in Cape Town is celebrating both occasions with the Spring Break exhibition, opening on Thursday 4 August 2011.

Filling the pods at Freeworld, Spring Break features the work of Frank Bohm, Jay Smith, Sam Scarborough and Inhouse Brand Architects.

Also celebrating Women’s Day, the opening will be in aid of the Safe Spaces Campaign, a charity initiative raising awareness about the personal safety of girls and women. Some 45 creatives, including Zapiro, Conrad Botes, Brandt Botes, Skinny laMinx, Charles Maggs, Lauren Beukes and Tracy Lynch have been enlisted to design unique artworks out of yellow soccer balls. These artworks will be auctioned at the launch.

At the event you can also enjoy a skills demo by Grass Roots Soccer, form a human chain across the Fanwalk pedestrian bridge and listen to guest speaker executive major Patricia de Lille. Visit Freeworld's website for more details.
