Cultural Planning

Delve also explores more contemporary issues and has a keen interest in cultural planning and mapping processes. It is actively involved in toolkit development in this relatively new field in South Africa. ┬áRecently Delve, in association with Dr Rike Sitas (of the African Centre for Cities, Cape Town), Dr Laura Nkula (PRODIG, Paris) and Ms Ukhona Mlandu (director of Mlandu Works, Cape Town), developed a Cultural Planning Toolkit Framework with the City of Cape Town’s Arts and Culture Branch.┬áThis involved engaging with global, national and local planning policies, co-designing a step-by-step guide for building local community-driven cultural plans and facilitating workshops about how to apply the toolkit in local communities.
