The Sanlam HmC is excited to reveal a lineup of curated special projects that will offer our audiences an artisanal trading experience like no other. Every year these projects give the fair its flair and make it a much-anticipated highlight on Joburg’s events calendar.
The Fair takes place from 13th -15th October in Hyde Park Corner and will weave three special projects into this year’s weekend of festivities; Well Made in Africa, Chefs in the City and the first ever, Making the Masters talks session.
Well Made in Africa
Guest Curator, Tapiwa Matsinde is at the reigns of this year’s Well Made in Africa segment that promises to excite. We have no doubt that the selection of designers from the continent will represent the highest calibre of African design.
Highlights from 2016 include Aaks, Mille Collins, Johanna Bramble, Laurence Airlines and Sammy Ethiopia
Chefs in the City
Chefs in the City is back! A regular favorite at Sanlam HmC, Chefs in the City invites the country’s top chefs to take the stand for a day to create their signature dishes for curious audiences. This year we welcome Urbanologi’s, Jack Coetzee. Gemelli’s founder Alessandro Mosupi Khojane and Chef Paulo Santo, Daniella Gutstadt of Culinary Table as well as dw-eleven 13’s Marthinus Ferreira. A lineup that just can’t be missed.
Making the Masters
The brand new Making the Masters, will be a platform that facilitates the sharing of industry-relevant thought leadership around African design. This panel discussion takes place on the morning of the 13th in collaboration with Creative Mornings JHB, an international monthly breakfast lecture series designed for creative communities.
In the coming weeks we’ll be revealing more of what else you can expect from these special projects; in the meantime make sure you mark your calendars so you can join us at the Fair from 13-15 October on the rooftop of Hyde Park Corner.
