After five years in the CBD, Open Streets Cape Town has a new home in Woodstock.

They are moving from Harrington Street in town to 2 Clyde Street in Woodstock and the non-profit organisation (NPO) believes the move is good for its future.

The move is as a result of development taking place at the NPO’s old building.

Rebecca Campbell, acting managing director, says: “We are excited to be based in Woodstock though, as there has been a lot of support in this area for Open Streets. We are a very small and agile organisation, with only three full-time staff and a board of six. But there is a broader family of Open Streets supporters, volunteers, partners, and collaborators, who have all helped to grow the movement.”

She says Woodstock has always been a home to them as they have hosted several successful events in the area.

Campbell says Open Streets is all about people coming together and connecting to help create a more inclusive, connected and safer city.

She says they are grateful for all the people who have joined hands with them “to break down social barriers and build a stronger sense of community in neighbourhoods” across the city.

“We can’t wait to continue the journey together and encourage everyone to keep spreading the philosophy of Open Streets,” says Campbell,.

Open Streets also has a vacancy for an operations manager, who will manage the team and keep things in order, “so we have more time to be out engaging with communities,” Campbell says.
