Design Indaba 2012: The Conference

South Africa's premier conference on bettering the world through creativity


Now in its 17th year, the world-class conference, Design Indaba explores how to better the world through creativity and design innovation. For three days, the annual Cape Town-based summit brings together an international collective of visionary leaders to share ideas and new ways of thinking. The conference showcases South Africa as a hotbed for forward-thinking solutions, demonstrating how a country can uniquely shape the future through creative problem-solving.

Each year the conference surpasses itself with the talent presented on stage and in the audience, and as media partners for the third year in row, we will be sharing some of the wisdom delivered at Design Indaba. Keep an eye out for more to come from the minds of people like scent artist Sissel Tolaas, Noma mastermind René Redzepi, landscape designer Dan Pearson and more.
