A series of nine monthly episodes explore obstacles and solutions to social-spatial integration in the Cape Town metropolitan region.


A4 hosts the Integration Syndicate, directed by Edgar Pieterse of the African Centre for Cities. The Integration Syndicate draws together a fixed group of leaders from the public sector, social movements, NGOs, academia and the private sector.

The ongoing project fosters ‘action networks’ through encounters in a non-partisan, safe and open space where frank discussions are paired with a commitment to collaborative answers. Focused conversations unfold amidst a heavy reliance on maps, information graphics, and other data sources, in an attempt to ensure that anyone may enter the debate, and to avoid the risk of ideological stand-offs.
