After its highly successful and widely acclaimed debut in 2010, where a total of more than 20,000 visitors saw the first set of nine exhibitions, AACDD – African & African-Caribbean Design Diaspora Programme celebrates black creativity throughout September and October 2011 at various locations across London.


AACDD 2011 events will be a celebration of creativity and innovation by members of the African & African-Caribbean Diasporas living and working in the UK, artists and artisans from Africa and the Caribbean as well as work from British and international AACDD partner organisations.

Coinciding with the London Design Festival (September 10/11) and the London Design Festival (September 17-25), the main focus of the African & African-Caribbean Design Diaspora Festival 2011 will be the series of individually curated exhibitions, installations and events at the Bargehouse Building opposite the Oxo Tower on the Southbank.
