Design Indaba Durban Simulcast Broadcast 2018

Experience the world's leading creative currency that's driving design for a better world with Design Indaba's iconic annual conference.

The Design Indaba conference, taking place in Cape Town from 21-23 February 2018, will go beyond design to create a multi-sensory event where you can hear, see, learn and experience the future of creative thinking and design activism. Awarded as the Best Conference in the World, Design Indaba aims to make a positive impact on society by building a movement that attracts producers of meaningful culture and business, regardless of sector or industry.

The 3-day Durban Simulcast event offers the Design Indaba experience to those unable to attend the full event in Cape Town. Catering to emerging designers, students and young professionals, this live-broadcast is a not-to-be-missed opportunity to hear from speakers including designer Morag Myerscough and poet Lebo Mashile, and to be part of the DI magic.

Confirmed speakers of the substantial 2018 panel include celebrated and prolific spatial designer Morag Myerscough, who most recently reimagined the interior of the Bernie Grant Arts Centre cafe in London; Zietz Mocca designer Thomas Heatherwick; Dutch landscape architect Peter Veenstra, co-founder of LOLA Architects, who created the Adidas Campus headquarters in Germany and is bringing his structural genius to the Design Indaba stage; famed product designer Tom Dixon OBE; and Es Devlin who is known for creating kinetic stage sculptures in collaboration with artists including Kanye West and BeyoncΓ©, as well as installations at the Victoria & Albert Museum and Art Basel and the 2012 Summer Olympics closing ceremony.

Hosted this year at The Plant Venue Co. in Durban's prominent Station Drive Precinct, the event promises to amaze, uplift and motivate delegates to find new ways in which to design a better world.
