For those that don’t know, the annual Design Indaba Conference and Expo is underway at the Cape Town International Conference Centre (CTICC) and it’s an event that creates great interest and commotion every year. Quivertree is hugely excited to be involved in the Design Indaba’s BOOK exCHANGE project. Several Quivertree titles will be available for purchase from the exchange – a project that will see all proceeds go towards creating a library at Kannemeyer Primary School in Grassy Park, while the book exchanges stand shelves will be donated to the school after the Expo. In the BOOK exCHANGE’s own words:

You can help upgrade its library by browsing the curated daily selection of preloved books at Expo and giving one of them a new home, or by bringing books and stationery to the Expo and donating them at the stand.

The idea of creating a library for the school is to inspire, incite change and unlock the potential within the learners. There will be a variety of local and international titles about design in all forms and a selection of authors and comic book artists stopping by to launch and sign their books. What a great initiative!
