KAMERS/Makers is midway through their ‘Year of Making Good’ and it’s definitely so far… so good!
After a record-breaking April show at St John’s College in Joburg, they hosted another wonderful Cape Town show at the iconic Castle of Good Hope in May, where they featured the first of their Mzanzi Makers projects with great success.
Mzanzi Makers is their personal ‘making good’ project – a non-profit organization that sources, mentors and ultimately showcases talented Makers from previously disadvantaged communities at their KAMERS/Makers shows. In this way, they not only upskill these fledging creative entrepreneurs, but also give them a real platform on which to launch successful artisan businesses.
Over the years, they have launched more than a dozen artisans into the mainstream retail market, where they now have healthy and sustainable businesses, a number of which have become household names in South Africa. 2017 has seen this trend continue, with three of their Makers finalizing export contracts in Holland, Milan and Florida – all on the back of their presence at KAMERS/Makers shows!
It’s with this momentum that they are launching five new Mzanzi Makers projects at their Summer 2017 shows, the first being at the stunning Anura Wine Estate, just off the N1 outside Stellenbosch.
In keeping with their mantra of ‘the coolest stuff you’ve never seen’, this show will feature more than 30 brand new Makers! Their sponsorship partner, Absa, will again be showcasing the latest innovations in instant payment solutions, making it easier than ever to fill your free shopper bag with unique KAMERS/Makers products.
They will close 2017 with a December show at Southdowns College in Irene, near Centurion in Gauteng. A firm favorite with their Pretoria and Jozi fans. This will be their sixth year at the Southdowns campus –and this show is going to be better than ever!
