By volunteering with us, you’ll get an opportunity to work on exciting projects and meet design professionals and influencers from across the world. We expect a passion towards your own skills and commitment to our mission.

We are always looking to help our team grow to achieve their goals and aspirations. After working with us, our interns and volunteers have gone on to be successful in fields such as design thinking and graphic design and photography and even gained admission to higher education internationally.

Please tell us in 200 words why you are the perfect volunteer for Nairobi Design Week.

The deadline for this year’s applications is October 1st 2017.

Our number one priority is multidisciplinary collaboration with those in design and beyond. We believe that by acting as a catalyst for projects and partnerships we can have a bigger positive impact and provide our expertise in the areas where it’s needed most. Making those connections is what keeps us inspired every day.

The annual festival gives citizens a chance to explore the scene and participate in projects and conversations concerning their city. By focusing on a theme every year, we curate a select number of events and projects that aim to keep an open dialogue and create tangible outcomes beyond the week.

Beyond the festival, we work with partners to create an engaging calendar of design events throughout the year. Through our online platforms we aim to keep professionals and design enthusiasts updated on some of the latest events and news in Nairobi. By talking to our community we are able to connect agencies, designers and other creatives to clients, collaborators and partner projects.
