Socio-Economic Impact of the 2017 Cape Town Carnival The Cape Town Carnival was established in 2010. The theme for the 2017 Carnival was ‘Amaza – Ocean Odyssey.’ Main aims of the event included providing opportunities for community participation and networking, building social cohesion, and building tourism and job creation. Research design was based on the Framework for the Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) of Publically Funded Arts, Culture and Heritage (SACO, 2016). Data was collected via interviews with audiences, data provided by organisers, and focus group discussions held with community participants in the parade.
