Zeitz MOCAA and V&A Waterfront Silo District,
Cape Town, South Africa

#FREESPACE creates an open forum of public discussion, talks and performance, provoking different notions of public space. 

#FREESPACE offers the opportunity to discuss and engage with the concept of space as a resource and space as a binding medium between people; from a cultural, architectural, urban and personal perspective.



#FREESPACE creates a temporary space of meaningful engagement, disentangling some of the aspects informing the production of space.

Public space is explored through the lens of multiple disciplines, reaching beyond the realm of architecture and planning, to expose the intricate inter-relationships that give birth to or impact upon the notion of ‘space’.

Ranging from talks to panel discussions, workshops and performance, the programme stimulates critical discussion and reflection. Each event is followed by an informal drinks reception.

The public events are free to attend but online pre-booking is required. The programme takes place at the Zeitz MOCAA and V&A Silo District on weekends and during early evenings in the week.
