The Design Indaba is Cape Town's foremost design event in 2016.
The design festival and exhibition showcase the best creative talents of the African continent. The annual festival takes place this year with a large variety of events from 17 February to 27 February 2016.
The DesignIndaba Conference is held between 17 and 19 February in Cape Town. The Cape Town Design Indaba Film Festival takes place in Cape Town at the Labia Theatre until the 20 February, while in Durban and Johannesburg, Potchefstroom and Port Elizabeth films will be screened over 3-day periods.
More than 40 000 visitors joined the various events during last year's design festival and when more than 600 exhibitors from the African continent showcased their designer ware from the fashion, jewellery, furniture, homeware, handmade and architecture sectors.
However, the Designer's foremost Indaba has undergone changes and in 2016 there will not be any expo format as in the previous years, but various events taking place all over Cape Town. For more info, please check their new multimedia platform here.
