Presenting the Emerging Creatives for Design Indaba Expo 2014, 28 February to 2 March at the CTICC.
Once again, we were blown away by the exceptional talent of our emerging South African creative community. We received over 200 applications for our Emerging Creatives programme this year, and our curatorial panel of creative industry leaders had the near-impossible task of narrowing it down to only 42 for Design Indaba Expo 2014.
Thanks to the Department of Arts and Culture, 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 Design Indaba Conference.

In addition, this year we selected eight up-and-coming designers and paired them 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.
