El Salvador – CONTEMPO

CONTEMPO started as a USAID Export Promotion Program initiative to promote innovative exports.

Having identified the contemporary furniture industry as a viable segment to market Salvadoran design talent and craftsmanship, CONTEMPO was conceived as a national design contest to attract talent, prompt them to design for the target market, and promote EL Salvador as a design destination by exhibiting winning collections at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) a leading venue for high end contemporary furniture.

Given CONTEMPO´s success promoting creativity and positioning El Salvador in a new market segment, the Fairshare Foundation assumed the leadership to ensure CONTEMPO´s sustainability.

In coordination with the Museum of Art of El Salvador (MARTE) the Fairshare Foundation raised funds among the private sector and organized CONTEMPO 2009.
