afrika-handmade-poster
Dates: October 2-16, 2016
Venue: Alliance Française

About
For the 3rd year running, Craft Afrika is proud to present Afrika Handmade Gallery, an artisan and design installation for home + garden.

The 2 week event opens Sunday October 2nd and runs until 16th October 2016 (including Saturdays and Sundays) at Alliance Francaise, Nairobi. Entry is free.

Featuring a prefabricated living pod, 15 new home decor collections and fine art from one of Kenya’s leading contemporary art galleries, the event aims to strengthen domestic market opportunities for local home interior brands.

Factors such as a negative perception of the sector, weak distribution channels and general lack of awareness have long suffocated the ability of local entrepreneurs to reach their target markets.

“Through Afrika Handmade Gallery, we are able to tap into collective strength in addressing some of these common challenges” says Christine Gitau, the project coordinator.

Taking up two floors and garden of the venue, the installation offers a carefully curated experience, complete with gallery guides and a professionally developed exhibition catalog.

Dottie Anangwe, the event manager says of the exhibitor selection process, “we began selecting early in the year, and are very proud of those who made the final cut. They have all been working very hard to create something special, so don’t miss this opportunity to see something truly spectacular.” she adds.
