Since 1995, Design Indaba has contributed vastly to uplifting the South African design sector through education and projects - and will continue to do so. We’d like to invite delegates to make their own contribution to growing the design industry by way of a voluntary donation towards the not-for-profit Design Indaba Trust, which supports the attendance of students in need. This voluntary donation is entirely at your discretion and is an optional prompt that forms part of your online booking and payment – so there’s nothing extra you’ll need to do!
And if you’re already doing something amazing within our community, we’d love to hear about it and share it across our platform! Please contact the Design Indaba editorial team at firstname.lastname@example.org with your news.
