Loeries to launch Creative Week Cape Town

13 Aug 2010 09:49
The Loeries Awards will, this year, launch the inaugural Creative Week in Cape Town as part of the annual festival. Creative Cape Town has partnered with the Loeries to boost the festival and awards and to involve the city's creative community in Creative Week Cape Town, 24 September - 3 October 2010.
Loeries to launch Creative Week Cape TownCreative Week Cape Town, inspired by the New York Creative Week, has been initiated as a legacy event for Cape Town's bid for World Design Capital 2014, and invites individuals and organisations involved in all aspects of Cape Town's creative life - education, arts, design, advertising, music and service organisations - to participate.

Events can be staged anywhere in the city with Creative Week Cape Town culminating in the Loeries Festival Weekend (1 - 3 October).

How to participate

Creative Week Cape Town is a user-generated event, which means that events are independently organised by participants. Creative Cape Town does not offer funding for any event.

Creative Week Cape Town, together with these events, will be "self-" promoted on the website www.creativeweekct.co.za, in the mainstream media, niche publications and sites, including those of Creative Cape Town and its partners.

To register an event, go to www.creativeweekct.co.za and click on events.
