Client: RIS (Department of International Cooperation of the Municipality of Dilbeek in Belgium)
Type: tourist map development, visual database + captions for web-development
Theme: informal and small tourist related business in the historical disadvantaged communities of the greater Stellenbosch area
Medium: photography and digital collage
RIS' request was to identify 40 entrepreneurs with more or less touristic affiliation within the townships of the Greater Stellenbosch area. The data was gathered to create a map to promote alternative tourism. The original idea of a foldaway printed map with photo-gallery was then replaced by a website, which was further developed by RIS in cooperation with ViaVia Travellers Cafés and Belgian touroperator Joker. The selection below are the initial photographs and data-cards and some preliminary sketches for the project.
