   Basket Case exhibition - National Gallery, Harare    

Following a very successful initial show in Bulawayo, in September 2010 the Alliance Française again hosted The New Basket Workshop’s BASKET CASE exhibition but this time at the National Gallery of Zimbabwe in Harare.

Work from the Binga Craft Centre, Bulawayo Home Industries, Lupane Women’s Centre and the Zienzele Foundation was exhibited through three of the NGZ’s galleries in a breathtaking show curated by Heath Nash.

It has been nearly thirty years since the NGZ in Harare has shown a craft-based show. The response was huge.

TNBW used the event to illustrate how design can improve the lives of rural basket workers

"It was my pleasure to support "The Basket Case" and I hope you have the motivation to do another one. It has done such a lot to lift the profile of craft in Zim." - Jane Parsons, Craft Activist, Harare, Zimbabwe
