Durbanites need not have FOMO! The renowned Design Indaba is coming to the KZNSA in the form of a stimulating three-day live simulcast, with a direct feed from the main event in Cape Town that will give residents of surf city a new kind of rush. Taking place from 26-28 February 2020 at KZNSA, Durban’s popular gallery and courtyard café, the simulcast will share the best of international thought leadership in the creative industries.
Design Indaba has become one of the world’s leading design events and in an effort to increase accessibility to the annual conference, the simulcast offers the Design Indaba experience to those unable to travel to Cape Town.
