The Design Indaba is an annual festival and conference aimed at fostering innovative design to create a better future through creativity. The 2018 edition of the Indaba is occurring from 21 – 24 February and there is no shortage of local talent. In fact, the festival is featuring outstanding creativity this year.
Literary giant, Lebo Mashile will join design discussions among a sea of upcoming industry creatives. The festival is also showcasing the award-winning South African film, Five Fingers for Marseilles. In fact, the indaba will screen the film with free entrance on 21 February.
Our focus is African and global creativity, through the lens of the work and ideas of leading thinkers and doers, opinion formers, trendsetters and industry experts. – Design Indaba
2018 Design Indaba
While reading through the programme, one will struggle to be familiar with many of the names who will express their design an innovation at the festival. This is good. The festival does not simply rely on the established arts and culture idols of the nation. It is also rewarding the unrecognised greatness in less popular artists. More than just this, the festival is proudly South African.
