For the 25th year in a row, the Design Indaba will be taking place at Cape Town’s prestigious Artscape Theatre between the 26th and the 28th of February 2020.
The three-day programme, built on the foundation that creativity drives progress and creates solutions, will yet again be serving a variety of innovative events that prompt people to think, act and at the same time, showcases the latest Emerging Creatives.
In order to increase accessibility to Design Indaba Conference and expose more potential creatives and game-changers to innovative, creative, out-of-the-box thinking, the Design Indaba offers a live broadcast of the main plenary session to various venues around Southern Africa.
This year, the Design Indaba Simulcast will be broadcast live to major cities around the country, that include Cape Town, Johannesburg, Durban, Port Elizabeth and Potchefstroom. The must-see speakers for 2020 are:
