A thriving gold culture
Kano is a historic city and empire that was part of an ancient trade route where merchants exchanged indigo, gold, spices, and ivory. The inherent wealth of the region has unbreakable links between culture and gold. Promoting and developing Kano’s gold industry and the economy will also provide economic empowerment across artisanal and cultural economies. Be part of a gold trade renaissance and join us in Kano in August 2020!
