What is Afrika Handmade Gallery and how is it different from the Symposium?

Afrika Handmade is a two-part event that consists of an installation (the Gallery) and a networking forum (the Symposium). The Gallery opens Sunday 2nd October and will feature the finest homegrown brands in home decor + home textiles + garden. It runs until 16 October 2016 and will be open everyday (including the weekends), 9-6pm. There is no entry fee. More about the Gallery here.

The Symposium is a 2 day event that takes place 6-7 October. It is open to all entrepreneurs within the artisan and design sector, regardless of product category. Registration fee to attend the symposium is Ksh6,500 per person for the 2 days. More details on the symposium here.

Do you have a special rate for groups and students?

We do not offer special group or student discounts. We have instead kept the price low in order to make it affordable for as many people as possible

Can I transfer my ticket?

Yes, you may. Be sure to alert us via email so we can plan accordingly

I want to cancel my ticket. Do I get a refund?

We will accept cancellations before 10 September at a cost of 30% of the ticket price. We unfortunately cannot refund cancelled tickets after this date

What if I only want to attend one instead of two days?

This is entirely up to you. We however recommend that you attend both so you get full value

What is the event’s hashtag on social media?

The primary hashtag is #ahmade16, with the secondary ones being #artisan, #design, #madeinKE, #twopointoh
