• Design Indaba Festival 2017

    The annual Design Indaba Festival includes the flagship conference on global creativity, and live performances and exhibitions including Emerging Creatives and Most Beautiful Object in South Africa.

Design Indaba 2017 is set to be an extravagant festival of food, music, art, tech and visual feasting – and of course all the best of design and the creative sectors that our audience has come to expect from the world’s favourite creative conference.

The 2017 event will be more of a festival than ever before – hosted from one central hub at the Artscape Theatre Centre in Cape Town, where all arenas of the festival will come together in one immersive, highly sensorial, creative experience. After the close of the conference each day, the Artscape will open to the public and continue its celebration of creativity late into the evening. 

For the first time this year, Design Indaba has appointed a creative director to the festival. Esteemed Senegalese fashion giant Selly Raby Kane is applying her creative genius into conceiving and building an Afro-centric dreamscape at the Artscape filled with activations, installations, exhilirating performances and beyond.
