Nairobi Design Week 2019 : Free Mind Sessions

The fourth Nairobi Design Week took place on 17th-23rd March 2019, under the theme Culture & Heritage. NDW19 invited visitors to discover how East Afrikan heritage has influenced the world we live in today, and how design impacts the culture of the world we will pass on to future generations.

Events took place around the city, at The Alchemist bar, University of Nairobi, and for the first time at Nairobi National Museum, where the exhibition ran for six weeks.

 


 

Free Mind Sessions was an intimate panel discussion in the amphitheatre of the Nairobi National Museum which gave everyone the microphone to share their thoughts and ask questions.

Audience participants included Susan Wanjiku Njoroge, Balmoi Abe of Matter Open Lab, Patricia Kanana, Flo Sitati, Kristen de Vallière of Say hi to, James Shaw and the NEON team.

 

Panelists:

Lulu Kitololo of Lulu Kitololo Studio and Afrilove Fest

Chepkemboi Mang’ira

Bryan Graff of Matwana Matatu Culture

Isa Mohamed of Black Rhino VR
