Is any of “those friends of Africa” really interested seeing well trained designers of International caliber come form the continent, who can tell their own stories? I’m ready to listen if someone has a convincing argument to that effect. Reply It’s not a question of exploiting a culture nor showing cleverness, it’s just a different point of view, a different aproach . At George Pericles we believe that Africa as enourmous cultural heritage that has to preserve and reinterpreted. Our work just start the debate on how Rwanda can preserve its culture. It’s a tribute paid to an amazing and rich culture. Africa already has International caliber designers like Saki Mafundikwa , Francis Keré or David Adjaye. We are also teaching at the Kigali Faculty of Design (FAED) so we are helping the next generation of Rwandan Designers. Reply fantastic project, I hope the government will take a look at it. I love it, it’s what every East African country should do. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
