Transformative Leisure Economies Exhibition

Sustainable Livelihoods Foundation

Can the leisure economy have a transformative impact on township economic development?

The Sustainable Livelihoods Foundation in collaboration with UrbanWorks Architecture and Urbanism will be exhibiting the results of a study of Eveline Street, a high street in Katutura, Windhoek.

The research provides important lessons for urban policy makers in South Africa on how land management reforms, private ownership, enterprise formalisation and entrepreneurial investment have resulted in a dynamic high street economy. The exhibition will explain how an enabling policy environment in Eveline Street has resulted in rapid business growth and sector diversification.

Entry is free and the exhibition will be open for the public from 13h00-18h00 on Thursday, 16 March and from 09h30-16h00 on Friday, 17 March. Presentations at 15h00 on Thursday and 13h00 on Friday.
