Keep posted for the confirmed speakers at Design Indaba Conference and all the news on exhibitors at the Expo, plus Filmfest 2013 and much more.
Established in 1995 with its flagship conference, the institution has evolved into a multidisciplinary experience that now comprises the globally acclaimed annual Design Indaba Conference, Simulcast, Expo and FilmFest, as well as a host of community initiatives, training workshops, music festivals, design projects, performances and publications.
Design Indaba was born from the upsurge of confidence in South Africa’s post-1994 future with a vision that the creative shall inherit the earth.
Focusing on bringing international thought leadership to South Africa since 1995, the Design Indaba Conference has grown to become one of the world’s leading design events and hosts more than 40 speakers and 2 500 delegates.
Also encouraging local creativity to go global, Design Indaba Expo provides a commercial platform for South African designers to showcase local goods and services to the global market through influential international buyers.
By attracting the world’s brightest talent, Design Indaba has become a respected institution on the creative landscape and one of the few multisectoral events that celebrates all the creative sectors – including graphic design, advertising, film, music, fashion design, industrial design, architecture, craft, visual art, new media, publishing, broadcasting and performing arts.
Besides the flagship Conference and Expo, Design Indaba has grown into a multitiered experience that now incorporates other events, media, education, training, activism, advocacy and business development.
