My African AestheticEunice Nanzala Schumacher & Penina Acayo Laker
On this podcast, we interrogate african aesthetics and african design philosophy with african/black design professionals, african design enthusiasts/advocates, educators, creatives and storytellers living and practicising in africa and the african diaspora. We talk about how their work and design process intersects with their African Aesthetic; and what the african aesthetic means to them both as individuals and as members of their communities.
Our platform centers african design research on african aesthetics and african design philosophy in africa and the african diasporas. We encourage dialogue with and between african/black design professionals and creatives aiming to inspire young and upcoming black/african designers and create an authentic, educative, supportive, professional and sustainable community.
We are open to collaborations and are glad to engage in projects, seminars, workshops and other engagements that center african aesthetics and african design research.
