 Since 1995, Design Indaba has been on a mission to re-imagine Africa and inspire a whole new generation of reformers, thinkers, dreamers and do’ers with firsthand accounts from the best creative exponents in the world. All six continents are represented, across the gamut of disciplines from digital to urban planning, and art direction to fashion – with a cast ranging from twenty-somethings to octogenarians, because we are an equal opportunity celebrant of creativity and innovation of every stripe. 

The next iteration will take place at the Artscape Theatre from 17-19 February 2016 and will be simultaneously broadcast to venues in Cape TownJohannesburgDurbanPort Elizabeth & Potchefstroom

Don’t miss your chance to witness and experience the awe, wonder and power of creativity. The Design Indaba, winner of the IBTM’s Best Conference in the World award in Barcelona, has been sold out for over 11 consecutive years, and this year, tickets are selling faster than ever.

Perhaps, the most compelling statement comes from a delegate: “Design Indaba is like a Cirque du Soleil for your mind!"

Let's create a better world through creativity.
