Standard Bank LUJU Food and Lifestyle Trader Applications 2019

The Standard Bank Luju Food & Lifestyle Festival invites suitable candidates to apply to trade in the festival’s Food Garden or the Design Cafe.

 

Food Garden

This year the Standard Bank Luju Food & Lifestyle Festival embraces the theme ‘A return to the African Future’: a return to a time when we respected the soil and Mother Nature. We celebrate the relative and cyclical nature of time. We contemplate what the future holds, with the understanding that our past holds the answers. As we reflect on the state of our environment, we recognize the effects of our culture of food consumption and its impact on the future, we recognize the ways of old, and that our past holds the key to our future.

We invite interested food traders to embrace this theme, reflecting it in your menu, presentation and stall decorations; to experiment with your menu, using the historical origins of your dishes to tell a tale about our future, and supporting this through imagery and interaction in your space, highlighting what makes it unique. Sample sized options are also encouraged, allowing festival guests the opportunity to taste a range of food on offer. Food vendors will therefore be selected based on the above criteria including the premium quality of their food and with an eye towards innovative food presentation or preparation and with a regional/pan-African focus.
Times is relative. The past and future are within you, plant a seed that will reveal the route of your past and future.

Design café

The Standard Bank Luju Food & Lifestyle Festival embraces the theme ‘A return to the African Future’. We ponder on the riddle of what the future holds, from African vintage to African Futurism. We return to a past where our heads were held up high with coiffeurs and feathers that defy gravity, asserting a proud lineage of kings and queens, astrologers, diviners, healers and teachers. Sicholo to Afro to Sicholo. We return to a time when the gold riches of our earth are sculpted into fine objects from Maphungubwe to Benin, celebrating the minds and hands that sculpted them. A time when gold and diamonds dangle discreetly on the bodies of the Swankas of Jozi and the Ogas of Lagos.

We invite interested design traders to embrace this theme, reflecting it in your display and stall decorations; to experiment with your creativity, using the historical origins of your products to tell a tale about our future, and supporting this through imagery and interaction in your space, highlighting what makes it unique. Design vendors will therefore be selected based on the above criteria including the premium quality of their product and with an eye towards innovative presentation and with a regional/pan-African focus.

Times is relative. The past and future are within you, plant a seed that will reveal the route of your past and future.
