There will be talks at 10:30 and 12:00 where we’ll go into even more detail. We’d love to see you there!

Zimbabwe Creative Exchange – Dzimbanhete

Some more updates from our Honours 2018 trip to Harare! This text directly from our team out there:

Dzimbanhete Art Interactions Trust was our last stop on our first day in Harare and here art and creativity are grounded in culture. Our visit was richly rewarded with ideas, knowledge and practice that ranged from African architecture to a visit to a sacred cave where rainmaking ceremonies still take place; the rock paintings were a bonus. Boundaries between art, culture, community and people are very blurry here, there is a spiritual frequency to practice and process. We did not feel like strangers. We left enriched.

You can learn more about Dzimbanhete here.




Just Design – Presenting at the Academy

We recently had Just Design present to our second and third year Graphic Design students. They are a multi-disciplinary design agency with a focus on branding, packaging and innovation. They shared some of their work with us, showing the incredibly high benchmark they have set for good packaging practice and the icing on the cake for us was having two Academy alumni, Jolize Jacobs and Maderi Hoffman, presenting the work!
