KAMERS/Makers 2017: Our Year of Making Good
KAMERS/Makers moves into its 15th year with a renewed energy and commitment to further boost creative entrepreneurship in South Africa.
We spent our summer break reflecting on our unique position as the country’s premier platform for artisan designers to showcase their wares, meet new customers, develop existing relationships and generally network with other creative souls in a supportive and fertile environment.
This extraordinary platform is, we realise, a special gift to all who are involved with it and to that end we need to leverage its power to build new businesses, create jobs and secure livelihoods for the thousands who benefit from KAMERS/Makers.
We called 2017 our year of ‘Making Good’ and have structured a number of initiatives aimed at spreading the power of the KAMERS/Makers platform further and deeper into the communities in which we operate.
We continue our successful partnership with Absa in creating a seamless, cash-free shopping experience at our shows. This year Absa will be showcasing some real banking innovations at each show, all aimed at making shopping a whole lot easier for us all.
More than 150 makers bring their unique, proudly locally crafted wares, delicious food and wine, live music and more to our Joburg and Cape Town shows this Autumn, making it two unmissable events. And if you simply cannot make it, shop online at shop.kamersvol.com – it’s the KAMERS/Makers magic, available at the click of a button!
