We would like to invite you to contribute and co-develop an innovative finance prototype which lends itself to the incremental upgrading of homes and settlements for better living. 


This workshop is part of a series of engagements that have been led by Aunnie Patton Power. An analysis and innovative financing prototype, developed from previous workshops and industry interviews will be available to attendees prior to the workshop.


The Better Living Challenge (BLC) is a project of the Craft and Design Institute designed to surface local innovative solutions to pressing or persistent socioeconomic challenges. The current iteration, BLC 2, focusing on surfacing solutions to incremental upgrading of informal settlements, is funded by the Western Cape Department of Human Settlements, and the Western Cape Department of Economic Development and Tourism.  At its core, the BLC is a problem-solving process. With the end user at the centre, it seeks to raise awareness, share knowledge, and incubate ideas and processes.


Refreshments and lunch to be provided


If there are any partners which come to mind, who you believe will provide meaningful and practical insight on the day, and have not yet been engaged, please feel free to let us know, so that we may extend the invite along with any additional necessary prior information.

Content and an outline for the day will follow in the week ahead of the workshop.
