The Global Africa Project: Maker Culture and the Economies of the Creative Community
Wednesday, October 28, 6 p.m.
Leslie King-Hammond, Founding Director of the Center for Race and Culture at the Maryland Institute College of Art, will discuss her examination of ways in which artists and designers in Africa and in the African Diaspora have created a broad spectrum of contemporary art, design, and craft worldwide. The Global Africa Project, which she curated with Lowery Stokes Sims, showcased a diverse group of creators, including a number of artists experimenting with the fusion of contemporary practices and traditional materials and others in design collectives that use their creative output as engines of local economic change.
