KDW hopes to enhance the synergy among our design partners, and in turn boost Uganda’s profile and attractiveness as a global city for design.
While existing design communities such as Uganda Society of Architects, Kafunda Kreatives, Uganda Press Photo Awards, etc. are built to promote design within their respective design fields, KDW fosters a multi-disciplinary approach to extending the design industries attractiveness and visibility beyond individual fields. KDW also makes design more accessible to people outside the design industry to raise awareness, such that they may better appreciate and ultimately support design.
Kampala Design Week builds onto the existing networks to create, grow and empower a community of designers to build a fulfilling and profitable career; while also prompting the world outside to appreciate and support the industry.
