Culture and Development East Africa (CDEA)’s Creative Economy Incubator in partnership with its sister company SanaaBiz Investments Limited will host its inaugural Mashariki Afro- Rustic Interior and Exterior Design Expo to be held at the National Museum and House of Culture, Dar es Salaam July 19-20, 2019
The Expo will be a curated Afro-rustic themed concept for Interior Designers, Landscape Designers, wholesalers, retailers and other Industry Professionals in East Africa, who would like to catch the attention of property developers and prospective home owners.
A rustic style is a design emphasis on rugged, natural beauty. It embraces nature-inspired textures, simple and earthy colors that exude organic warmth. Many companies, artists and craftspeople make rustic furniture in a variety of styles and with a variety of historical and contemporary influences. In the case of this Expo we shall focus on an East African cultural influence on buildings, homes and outdoor landscapes.
CDEA aims to be an influencer of the Afro-futurism movement in East Africa expressed as a visual metaphor of culture, identity and innovation in architectural, interior and spatial design, fashion, film, literature and music.
