AFRICA UTOPIA

AFRORETRO are heading to this years AFRICA UTOPIA, following 2012's sensational first edition, Africa Utopia is back to look at what can be learnt and celebrated from Africa and the African diaspora.

Looking at how African art and ideas can change the world for the better: how Africa can lead the way in thinking about culture, community, technology, fashion, sustainability and ethical wealth creation.

We'll be bringing our hand made Jewellery & Fashion that fuses together the natural materials of our homeland Uganda with UpCyled fabric scraps and remnant. Sharing the skills we have learnt in drop-in crafting workshops throughout the day.
