Workshop17 is a converted warehouse. It is an initiative of the V&A Waterfront and is operated by OPEN.
The warehouse provides opportunities to share, build and showcase across disciplines, sectors and cultures to accelerate the discovery of new solutions.
The Waterfront is the number one destination in Africa, with about 24 million visitors each year. Workshop17 is adding a new element to the Waterfront ecosystem of retail, residential, hospitality, entertainment, and food.
Workshop17 is not only a local hub, it also provides a landing platform and stepping stone for international players in academia and business to come into Africa and link with local talent to develop solutions for Africa which the world can see.
