HOW IT WORKS

Route creative journey starts of in Dakar, then we will travel to Saint Louis, Thies and Casamance. Workshops last two weeks and will put the students in close contact with local artisans, learning techniques and experimenting with them.
“I participated in ROUTE because, as a person and as a designer, I think it’s very important to know the world and work hand in hand with people from a different perceptive than yours, within a challenging environment, speaking different languages, and sharing different cultures. Route gives you a broader perspective on the profession and that is very inspiring.”
Natalia Barros, Fashion Designer. ROUTE 2015.
