29 Jan Design Indaba 2014 | Meet The Emerging Creatives
The 2014 Design Indaba is a month away and one of the usual highlights of the Expo for us is the Emerging Creatives section, an initiative by Design Indaba and the Department of Arts and Culture committed to nurturing and promoting SA’s up and coming creatives.
Design Indaba received over 200 applicants for this year’s programme, which a curatorial panel of creative industry leaders difficultly narrowed down to 42.
The featured Emerging Creatives will have a full sponsorship to showcase their talent at the Expo and have the opportunity to attend the Simulcast of the Design Indaba Conference.
Here’s who makes up the 2014 Emerging Creatives line-up and a quick look at what they make. Click on their names for more info.
In addition to this list, this year Design Indaba selected eight young designers to pair with experts in their relevant fields. The mentorship programme allows for collaboration and skills transfer, and the ability to learn from seasoned professionals who are working in the design industry.
