This exhibition supports the development of top export quality craft from a diverse range of disciplines. This competition and exhibition is designed to promote excellence in our local craft market and has been initiated by the Eastern Province Development Corporation and the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan Art Museum (Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality). 

Crafters and designers working in the Eastern Cape Province are invited to submit their outstanding creation for an exhibition at the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan Art Museum opening on the 20 of March 2020. 

Selection dates and venues are on the last page of the Entry form.


In support of national efforts to contain the spread of the Coronavirus, the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan Art Museum will be closed to the public until further notice as of 18 March 2020 and the exhibition opening scheduled for the 20 March is cancelled.
The LITHUBA LAKHO (THIS IS YOUR OPPORTUNITY): TOP EASTERN CAPE CRAFT EXHIBITION AND COMPETITION has been installed and we are very excited to share with the public pictures of the amazing work submitted for this year’s exhibition. This project is made possible through the collaboration of the Art Museum and the Eastern Cape Development Corporation.
