Nairobi Design Week 2020
Design is for everyone...
But what does that mean?
We’re all touched by design on a daily basis without realising it, and every person solves problems creatively in their own lives. So let’s explore design together!
CELEBRATING 5 YEARS OF NAIROBI DESIGN
2020 sees Nairobi Design Week return for a fifth festival, sharing stories of what we’ve learned, what we’re doing and where we’re going, as an organisation and as a community.
Our format stays familiar and gets tweaked every year. Events will run over seven days from Sunday 8th March to Saturday 14th March 2020 around the theme of ‘Inclusivity’.
MON 9 March 2020
This year Afrika Design comes back in a totally new format: Participants will take part in a LIVE interactive collaboration with the creative community!
Watch it all come together in front of your eyes.
