About The Event
Akuru Market at SLDF is a delightful pop-up store that proudly showcases an array of typographic collectables and keepsakes, all meticulously crafted by the Akuru Collective – Sri Lanka's pioneering non-profit volunteer collaboration for typography aficionados and designers. Within this exquisite assortment, you'll discover remarkable pieces from both the #30DaysofAkuru challenge and the works of leading type designers in Sri Lanka.
The annual 30 Days of Akuru campaign, a flagship endeavour of the Collective, which concluded its fifth consecutive year in 2023, is a creative exploration of language as a means to transcend barriers, with over 3,000 unique designs archived from a diverse group of designers, typographers, artists, and enthusiasts. It's a celebration of creativity and the power of language.
When you step into Akuru Market at SLDF, you're stepping into a world of possibilities. It's a place where Sinhala and Tamil letterforms come to life in ways you've never imagined. So come on in and explore - we're sure you'll find something that'll make you smile!
