Opening tonight (August 18) at 18h30 at artSPACE durban is Impart, a combined Student and Lecturer ‘design’ exhibition featuring the work of top students and lecturers from fashion, interior design and graphic design departments of the Design School Southern Africa (DSSA).

DSSA was founded in 1990 and grew to become one of the leading design education and training institutions in South Africa with a brand new campus having opened in Durban in 2013. The DSSA philosophy is that an education in design is no different than design itself. It should be well-planned, contemporary and, above all, creative. The organisation prides itself on providing an inspirational learning environment whether it’s Fashion Design, Graphic Design or Interior Design.

Impart is a reflection of the top work done by the first and second level Durban students over the past year and a half as well as personal work by the lecturers.

The following full time qualifications can be studied at the DSSA: BA Fashion Design; BA Graphic Design, and BA Interior Design – all three years minimum study.

Also available is a Higher Certificate: Art and Design which requires one year minimum study. DSSA also offers an array of part-time short learning programmes.

Impart runs until August 30 at 14h00. artSPACE durban is situated at 3 Millar Road (off Umgeni Road) close to the Waste Centre. More information on 031 312 0793 or visit or
