The 2017 Well Made in Africa special project invites guest curator, Tapiwa Matsinde. She is author of _Contemporary Design Africa_; one of the first books to survey Africa’s dynamic contemporary design industry, profiling approximately 51 designers and makers working on the African continent and beyond.
Tapiwa, who is of Zimbabwean heritage, currently resides in London where she researches and writes about contemporary design and creativity that originates and is inspired by Africa. She has contributed to numerous publications including the Ethical Fashion Forum, Design Indaba, Intense Art Magazine, and Moyi magazine where she currently serves as a Product Editor.
With her rich knowledge and passion for Contemporary African Design, we have no doubt Tapiwa will invite an exciting selection of new exhibitors from our vibrant continent that will showcase at Sanlam HmC in Hyde Park Corner from the 13-15 October.
