Founded in 1995, the now-annual Design Indaba conference and expo in Cape Town has evolved into one of the leading platforms for creative industries in the southern hemisphere. Cool Hunting is delighted to join a list of killer publications as a media partner for this year's events.
The conference kicks off today and runs through 28 February 2010, where we'll be listening to programs delivered by a veritable who's who in the design world, including the Bouroullec Brothers, Bruce Nussbaum, Gary Hustwit, Li Edelkoort, Martha Stewart, Tord Boontje and Michael Beirut, to name a handful.
The three-day event overlaps at the tail end with the three-day expo, which showcases the work of over 260 local exhibitors from the fields of advertising, architecture, craft, film, fashion, product design and more. The show, which has exploded in size since its inauguration in 2004, is the only local platform to feature multiple disciplines under a single banner—it's a rare and thrilling opportunity to see a diverse display creative output from South Africa.
We'll be sharing our favorite moments and choice finds in the coming weeks, so stay tuned.
