Design Indaba 2020 celebrates a momentous milestone in the conference’s legacy, it’s 25th anniversary. The 2020 iteration of the conference will bring to the stage the creative optimism and activism people have come to expect from the flagship platform. 

Described as a creative pilgrimage, Design Indaba is a 3 day multi-sensory, thought provoking and expansive experience that includes a series of captivating design talks by day and festival by night, featuring live music, theatre, exhibitions and masterclasses – all designed to help you explore the realms of creativity.

The Design Indaba Conference 2020 will take place from Wednesday 26 February to Friday 28 February 2020 and will be held in the the Artscape Theatre Centre in Cape Town. In the evening, the same building will transform into a creative playground as the festival comes into play, a place where your Design Indaba experience is elevated.
