South Africa’s premier design conference,design indaba hosts a conference of over 30 carefully selected local and international speakers, gathering them under one roof to share their personal industry expertise with an attentive audience.
The three-day conference runs from february 29th to march 2nd, 2012 at the cape town international convention centre (CTICC).
The 2012 delegates include industrial designers, social activists, architects, design researchers, engineers, graphic designers, interaction designers, creative directors among the delegates are urban-think tank, united visual artists to name but a few. Since 1995, Design Indaba has been committed to a vision that is built on the belief that creativity will fuel an economic revolution in South Africa.
As such, Design Indaba is a celebration of design in a country iconic of the triumph of the human spirit. Proof that even the most intractable problem can be neutralised by the will of the people, resurgent South Africa is a beacon to the world. Design Indaba typifies this can-do spirit through its belief in design and how it can help solve the problems faced by an emerging economy. With the right support, a better future can be designed. Having attended many design events in Europe, this is one I would love to attend in the nearer future. It looks so exciting!
