Ashoka Fellow
South Africa
Fellow Since 2015
    This description of Jhono Bennett's work was prepared when Jhono Bennett was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2015.
    Through 1to1 – Agency of Engagement’s holistic model, Jhono is guiding the creation of a movement that aims to facilitate spatial designers in addressing the systemic issues that cause the socio-spatially unequal residential areas in South Africa. He believes that this model should be led by the development of an additional mode of spatial design practice that actively empowers inhabitants of marginilised residential areas to have a stronger role in the development of their own neighborhoods and homes, giving spatial practitioners a way of affecting real change in South Africa’s re-developing built environment.
