Established in 1995 with its globally acclaimed Design Indaba Conference, the Design Indaba brand has evolved into a multidisciplinary platform that champions all of the creative sectors. The annual Design Indaba Festival in Cape Town now also includes the highly popular Emerging Creatives programme, Most Beautiful Object in SA, Design Indaba FilmFest, Music Circuit, multiple Simulcast versions of the Conference in cities around South Africa, and other special events.
It’s more than a conference; it’s more than a music festival. It’s the annual do-tank at the intersection of innovation, business, social impact design and creative expression. Taking place at the Artscape Theatre Centre in Cape Town, the Design Indaba Festival is a showcase of the best in design and creativity.
The NightScape is also a no-miss. This event merges live music, cinema, performative art and food. You’ll find there the best South African artists and rising stars from all over the world.
As a preeminent creative platform, they set their own precedent. They are constantly tackling new self-initiative projects that lead the way in utilising and showcasing the power of creativity, collaboration and canny commercialism. Beyond just reportage, the event embodies story-making in action.
As part of the Design Indaba Do Tank platform, they play host to a variety of bespoke community initiatives, training workshops, design projects and publications, many of which are funded by the not-for-profit organisation, Design Indaba Trust.
