Design is an integral part of arts and culture that takes expression in areas such as fashion, jewelry, lifestyle and decor, arts, graphic design and more. South African Designers have exhibited, displayed and won awards through their creativity and innovative expressions and realisations both at home and in the international arena. Their artistic expressions are rooted in ancient and authentic traditions or in futuristic works creating the design landscape of tomorrow. Wherever these creators of South Africa draw their inspiration, they all contribute to telling a story about our country to our own people and the world, for in design, each creation has a purpose and a story.
It is the role of the DAC to support these artists in the design sector through training, funding, exposing their works, and helping them to access platforms beyond our borders.
