Dobson, Richard and Caroline Skinner. 2009. Working in Warwick: Including Street Traders in Urban Plans. Durban: University of KwaZulu-Natal

woking in warwickThe book documents the lessons learned from the Warwick Junction Project, an inner city renewal initiative which sensitively integrated street traders into the cityscape. It was led by WIEGO partner Asiye eTafuleni (AeT).

Working in Warwick offers a fresh look at street traders’ lives, the role they play in city life and their contribution to the economy.  It contains practical examples and aims to inspire other local authorities and planners in their dealings with the informal economy.  It is a picture heavy book that in addition hopes to "re-imagine" the informal economy in the minds of the public at large.  Assisted by Jillian Nicholson, the book is the first product of this work.

Dennis Gilbert, well known architectural photographer, contributed photos that beautifully capture the spirit of Warwick Junction.
