La galerie - Boutique Cabinet de Curiosités
We finally did it! Our dream and hard work has come to fruition and we would like to share this great news with all of you!
In March, we will be opening our very first boutique-gallery situated in the heart of the capital city of creatives. A space dedicated to the expression and presentation of African creativity, a space dedicated to bringing the voice of African lifestyle and aesthetics to the world capital of creation: PARIS. A space that places Africa on the map and presents it in its most beautiful light.
We've listened to your feedback and you have told us that you are looking to have a place in Paris which is:
+Dedicated to the outstanding and innovative African creativity present on the continent
+An address capable of capturing Africa’s current energy
+An address showcasing a harmonious selection featuring Fashion, Design, Lifestyle and Art.
+An address dedicated to Africa that inspires and promotes a dynamic aesthetic of creativity.
For the change-makers, the designers and the creatives pushing the new african narrative; in 35 days we'll be opening an address where you will be invited to showcase your work and at the same timeshare it with the world.
Because Paris is the number one creative capital as well as a strategic hub which connects designers, artists and creatives to the rest of the world.
At the forefront of nurturing & harbouring creativity within the continent, this address will allow brands to access a unique space which offers them quality service whilst promoting the genius that is African creativity and is far from the stereotype generally associated with the continent.
Various marketplaces dedicated to all things African are developing online which demonstrate the public's interest in the continents lifestyle. Despite this, physical experiences remain too short lived, too seasonal and are often not qualitative.
The reason we chose the exclusive address 93 rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, is that we aim to bring African lifestyle to the heart of Paris and lift African creatives higher than where they are usually positioned.
From Rue des Francs Bourgeois, to the Champs-Elysées via Rue Saint-Honoré, Place Vendôme, Boulevard Haussmann and its department stores; to Rue de Sèvres and Rue des Archives, here, one can find a multitude of designers who celebrate their creativity and poetic artistic expression. But in the most prestigious streets of Paris, the voice of Africa remains under-represented or even almost inaudible.
Allocation of funds
The goal of the campaign is to work together in installing our gallery signage and raise funds in order to invite 5 creatives from the continent to showcase their work in Paris.
We will be selecting those artists with our social media, online and offline communities from the following categories :
+ART (PAINTING - PHOTOGRAPHY - SCULPTURE)
Each stage of 5.000€ will allow us to invite an artist to present his/her work from one week to one month in our gallery. You will therefore be the first to see and acquire their pieces if you choose to fund this campaign.
A part of your contributions will also go towards paying Kiss Kiss Bank Bank 8% for using their platform.
Below is a graph illustrating how your kind contributions will benefit our campaign as well as the well deserving creatives based in Africa:
“INPUT YOU FINGERPRINT” and join us in opening the first address dedicated to African lifestyle in Paris. Opening on March 2nd, we present you with our dream for putting Africa on the map...let's do this together!
To those who wish to join us on this exciting journey, we will provide you with a special welcome and give you privileged access to the most prestigious products from the African continent. We will also cater to you by delivering bespoke services to you, our most esteemed clients.
We will also take the time to invite you, African creatives, to be a part of this project so that you can express yourselves in Paris, the international capital of creation.
