Activities

NO LIMITS!: MAKING AFRICA

To celebrate the Making Africa exhibition, the Didaktika project presents No limits! A wide ranging program of educational activities structured into two blocks. On the one hand, a more practical experience with workshops given by some of the artists in the exhibition, including Yinka Llori; and, on the other, more theoretical activities such as conferences and round tables taking design as their core theme in connection to other cross cutting issues implicit in the exhibition.

Current affairs, community, social education, design, identity, innovation, furniture, fashion, tradition and urbanism will be among the keywords of these educational experiences.

Consult the program on our website.
