Design for change. Design for good. Design for a better world.
These are the premises that fuel Design Indaba's drive for a better world through design, creativity and innovation.
Design Indaba is the founding event of the Cape Town Design FestivalTM and South African Design FestivalTM. Established in 1995 with its flagship conference, the institution has evolved into a multidisciplinary experience that now comprises a series of events that include the globally acclaimed annual Design Indaba Conference, Simulcast, Expo, FilmFest and various music festivals. In addition to these Design Indaba plays host to an array of community initiatives, training workshops, design projects and publications that fall under the Do Tank brand.
Designindaba.com is the online culmination of the Design Indaba experience, serving as a one-stop design portal for highly curated, bespoke multimedia content on global creative industries. Its primary goal is to publish content on world design happenings, thought leadership on the creative industries and insight into how a better world is possible through creativity. Part of its major offering is Design Indaba TV – an online TV channel that features original creative video content, including full-length talks from Design Indaba Conference, event coverage from the other major design events around the world and video features on creative thought-leaders. Not limiting itself to a narrow definition of design, Design Indaba also heralds the broader creative industries and innovation as a whole.
