With the LISOF x Design Indaba Simulcast around the corner, it’s time to prepare yourself for the sheer amount of design knowledge and creativity you’re going to experience. If you’re still unclear on what exactly we’re doing, we’ve answered some questions.
What is Design Indaba?
The Design Indaba Festival is a week long celebration of art and design which has been running in Cape Town since 1995. The festival features, along with many interactive exhibits, a three day conference with talks from renowned design legends locally and abroad. There is also a Emerging Creatives Exhibit where new talent is showcased, and a competition of Most Beautiful Object in South Africa.
It’s basically a one-stop shop for all things beautiful from architecture, to graphic and fashion design, interiors, exteriors, furniture and photography. The event is also set up to educate on the importance of design.
So then what is the Simulcast?
The event has grown exponentially since it’s inception, with more and more people interested in attending. And so, a need for events in other cities came about. The Simulcast is set up so that people in Johannesburg can get access to the conference. All talks of the conference will be broadcasted live and direct from the Design Indaba Cape Town event. At our Johannesburg campus, there are four venues set up with excellent sound technology in order to show talks in the highest quality. These talks will be happening on the 21st, 22nd and 23rd of February.
This is especially important for students interested in the arts, which is why LISOF is proud to be the official Joburg simulcast host for 2018.

What will be exhibited?
