“I believe that Ethiopia has yet to scratch the surface of its immense and vast creative potential. It is clear that we must begin to openly explore our creative and innovative capacities and imagine a renewed future. We need to construct a vision of greater possibilities.” – Metasebia Yoseph, founder/director DWAA
Through Design Week Addis Ababa Metasebia hopes to create an international platform for leading and emerging designers, artisans and artists to connect, and help position Addis Ababa as a global design capital. Working in partnership with a host of local and international organisations Design Week Addis Ababa will also develop a range of programmes to help foster local innovation and creative economies throughout the East African region, and will include lectures, workshops, and training.
