Once again, Core77 is pleased to partner with Design Indaba for their annual design/creativity/innovation Conference and Expo in Cape Town, South Africa, which has quickly grown to a week-long celebration of all things creative. As the biggest design event in the country, continent and hemisphere where it takes place, Design Indaba has firmly established itself as a progressive platform for artists and designers of all persuasions, as diverse as its locale even as the event attracts a global audience.
So much more than a "how-to" conference, this is a forum fuelled by inspiration that breeds ideas, ingenuity and innovation. Creativity is our currency and a better future our agenda. The Conference is your opportunity to learn from and be inspired by the world's foremost creatives, thought leaders, entrepreneurs and trendsetters. It's the not-to-be-missed creative inspiration event of the year, the perfect way to kickstart 2014.
This year's speakers include: Jake Barton, Lauren Beukes, El Ultimo Grito, Naoto Fukasawa, Experimental Jetset, David Goldblatt, Thomas Heatherwick, David Higgs, Tom Hulme, Margot Janse, Nandipha Mntambo, Zanele Muholi, Ije Nwokorie, Michel Rojkind, Dean Poole, Stefan Sagmeister, Scholten & Baijings, Marcello Serpa, DJ Stout and Clive Wilkinson.
As usual, Design Indaba's media team is producing tons of excellent video content—here is a video of the highlights from last year's event:
