Join us on the evening of 21 February for a night of music, performance, exhibitions, installations and food as we usher in the Design Indaba Festival with a one-night only all access event on the Artscape Piazza.
From a wonderland of whimsy designed by award-winning designer Morag Myerscough to curated stores and gourmet street food, you can experience the intersections of creativity.
Our exhibitions will include all the items nominated for the Most Beautiful Object in South Africa as well as a chance to meet and see the work of 40 of the country's top Emerging Creatives.
The Artscape Piazza will also serve as an open air pop-up gallery where the work of one of America's top illustrators, Edel Rodriguez will be shown alongside the nomadic art exhibition, the Tolerance Travelling Poster Show, which grows in scope as it moves around the world, pushing its message of benevolent acceptance. Come see the posters created by local artists as well as international graphic designers.
We will also be having a free screening the award-winning South African film, Five Fingers for Marseilles, which will be followed by a panel discussion with the film's creators Sean Drummond and Michael Matthews.
The film follows the life of the young ‘Five Fingers’ who fought for the rural town of Marseilles, against brutal police oppression. Now, after fleeing in disgrace, ‘outlaw’ Tau returns, seeking only peace. Finding the town under new threat, he must reluctantly fight to free it.
On the stage, live performances will include the likes of South African leading guitarist Guy Buttery, Cape Town DJ duo Beat Sampras, Urban Village and Jakinda will have you on your dancing feet.
The Wednesday free evening is just a taste of what the rest of the week will hold.
