Design Network Africa

African Continent

"Being a part of GUILD is a blessing to me, as I’m sure it is to the other designers from Africa, because it allows us to turn crazy dreams into reality. We get to work with the designers of the future.”
- Hamed Outtara

Design Network Africa connects highly respected designers from sub-Saharan Africa who represent the vibrancy and distinctive expression of a new African identity. In a true interchange of skills, aesthetics and narratives, the programme is designed to encourage collaboration, mentorship and experimentation.

Designers are selected for their authentic and diverse voices, sophisticated and original products and unique global appeal.

The current phase of Design Network Africa works with designers from Mali, Ghana, Senegal, Burkina Faso, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and Zimbabwe.

DNA is a programme led by the Danish Centre for Culture and Development (CKU), funded by the Danish Government and orchestrated by Source.
