Design Indaba Trust

Design Indaba Trust is a not-for-profit company that makes possible projects and initiatives dedicated to design education and development in South Africa.

The Design Indaba Trust aims to extend design exposure and training to young people across the creative sectors. We believe that the greatest barrier to entering creative industries for many is simply a lack of knowledge about it.

The lack of educational opportunities are a major structural impediment to transforming South Africa into a centre of design excellence, therefore The Design Indaba Trust awards bursaries to previously disadvantaged youth that enable them to further their studies.

The Design Indaba Trust has made possible Design Indaba Do Tank Initiatives such as the 10 x 10 Housing Projects, Your Street and #ANOTHERLIGHTUP.
