What did Kazakh designers feel when they showcased their work for the first time in London? What elements of urban culture, urbanism and street food inspired modern-day nomads? How could they best explain to the British what kurt is and describe the heritage of Kazakh culture?
On 14 October, A1462, a Kazakh team of designers, will give a public talk in Almaty. The designers will share their experiences from their participation in the London Design Fair, one of the world's leading design events.
Venue: ARTHOUSE, 127 Makatayev St.
Registration is required due to limited seating.
On 22-25 September, four Kazakh designers – Nastya Leonova, Aziz Abdulmazhitov, Timur Aktaev and Galym Kairalapov – took part in TENT London, an international exhibition held as part of the London Design Fair. The trip was conceived to promote cooperation between the design sectors of Kazakhstan and the United Kingdom.
Located in the creative heart of East London, the London Design Fair (including Tent London & Super Brands London) is a four-day event that brings together 450 exhibitors from 29 countries, including independent designers, established brands, international country pavilions, features and exhibitions.
The trip was organised with support from the British Council in cooperation with Chevron, as part of the project to develop creative industries in Kazakhstan.
