Institutional Presentation Statement
Topic: Decolonising Futures
Design Indaba has been a champion of the creative sector for the past 23 years through hosting a conference, expo and running the Emerging Creatives programme. But the world is changing and the digital space offers an exciting opportunity to explore new avenues. Decolonising Futures will touch on our work across the continent, meeting these young creatives in their home countries from Egypt, Tanzania, Nigeria, Senegal, Rwanda and finding out how they are using the internet to spread their work and do decolonial work through their art.
