Design Network Africa connects highly respected designers from sub-Saharan Africa who represent the vibrancy and distinctive expression of a new African identity. In a true interchange of skills, aesthetics and narratives, the programme is designed to encourage collaboration, mentorship and experimentation.
Designers are selected for their authentic and diverse voices, sophisticated and original products and unique global appeal.
The current phase of Design Network Africa works with designers from Mali, Ghana, Senegal, Burkina Faso, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and Zimbabwe.
DNA is a programme led by the Danish Centre for Culture and Development (CKU), funded by the Danish Government and orchestrated by Source.
To see more of Design Network Africa and many other greats go check be at the Guild. Southern Guild is putting the spotlight on the continent with GUILD, Africa’s only international design fair in Cape Town from 25 February to 1 March at the Lookout.
