Design Indaba 2015 is fast approaching and there are plenty of things to see and do from the 20th of February to the 1st of March. Here’s everything you need to know to make the most of Design Indaba 2015.
Design Indaba 2015 Conference Tickets and Speakers:
Celebrating their 20th anniversary, this year’s Design Indaba Conference brings the world’s greatest creative minds to Cape Town to impart their learnings, ideas and thoughts on design and creativity. The Conference sells out year after year, so to avoid disappointment, book now. Tickets cost R7 900 for the full Indaba and R3065 for one day.
A handy tip that you might not know about: if you claim from your workplace skills levy, you can get another 60% back, and so coupled with 10% early bird, or 15% alumni discount you could pay as little as 25% of the overall ticket price.
This year’s line-up of speakers includes: Roy Choi, Santiago Cirugeda, Selly Raby Kane, Rosita Missioni, Yoni Bloch, Emily Oberman, Sindiso Khumalo, The Workers ( Ross Carins and Tommaso Lanza), William Kentridge, Studio Propolis ( Naeem Biviji and Bethan Rayner), Dominic Wilcox, Stanely Hainsworth, Shubhankar Ray, Ng’endo Mukii and Wieden Kennedy.
