Fandindo Textiles

The BEDG gave me the greatest opportunity in my professional life, I exhibited with them at ICFF New York in may 2012. The exposure to the industry, the contacts and the rest of the BEDG members who exhibited were the best motivators to keep going, never stop making and consider making life as a creative.

THE AFRICAN AND AFRICAN-CARIBBEAN DESIGN DIASPORA FESTIVAL

A point of celebration is required to demonstrate the quality of creative thinking derived from London’s and the UK’s small but significant African and African-Caribbean* design community. This should provide a positive insight into design skills, engage and inspire others and create a promotional platform for designers working in London, the UK, Africa and the Caribbean.

The African and African-Caribbean Design Diaspora is a three year initiative of the British European Design Group (BEDG) to promote the creative skills and commercial potential of ethnic minorities of African and African-Caribbean descent in the UK and their creative counterparts in Africa and the Caribbean.

Co-funded by the Arts Council England/Lottery Fund and supported by the London Design Festival, the Initiative will run alongside the London Design Festival and the 2012 Olympics, with its final in September 2013.
