Indian arts, crafts at Crafts Centre
22 April 2021 | Art and Entertainment
This market is aimed at boosting the visits to the Namibian Craft Centre and to promote both Namibian and Indian crafts, arts, food and clothing.
The Namibia Craft Centre, which houses 40 Namibian SMEs, made their primary income from tourism. They have borne the brunt of the Covid-19 pandemic, which has seen tourism to Namibia drop by 87% in the past 12 months.
While local tourism initiatives have helped the establishments, not many locals have been visiting the craft markets. Part of the proceeds from the Indian market will go to Namibia Craft Centre.
The Indian market has also been organized to celebrate 75 years of India's Independence, and to boost the relationship between Namibia and India via the new association.
The market will is open daily from 09:00 to 16:30 (excluding Sundays) until 7 May.
