YOU can participate!

Design With Africa (DWA) is about providing an authentic African voice, and we are always looking for new and indepth content. Although we welcome diverse perspectives, DWA’s focus is on design, and our preference is for analyses that focus on design projects in specific communities or cities, rather than grand narratives about the continent. If you work, or have worked, in Africa and would are able to critically argue the relationship between design and Africa, please see the two forms of DWA contribution we have below.
