Intellectual Property Exhibition 2012

Info4africa, the Ubunye Co-operative and a number of other craft and design groups were privileged to exhibit their work as part of a unique KwaZulu-Natal craft showcase titled “Intellectual Property”. Held as a formal exhibition in the KZNSA Gallery art calendar for 2012, the name of the show is a testament to the need for local craft to be given respect and recognition as a unique, diverse expression of the people of KwaZulu-Natal. The show was a huge success and marked a turning point for the Ubunye Co-operative in seeing themselves as future designers of pieces worthy of gallery exhibition, rather than as crafters trading in the informal economy. There is a long way to go to achieve this vision but we believe we are standing firmly on the pathway to success.
