AG!LE is proud, once again, to be hosting the Durban YDS, the simulcast of the Design Indaba. We strongly encourage anyone seeking creative inspiration to attend. Despite the YDS’s name (Young Designer’s Simulcast), it is aimed at all ages and all creative sectors – architecture, music, interior design, graphic design, illustration, urban and landscape design, fashion, advertising, film and animation, etc. All are welcome.
As the foremost creative platform in South Africa, Design Indaba is committed to investing in design education and promoting the future of the creative industries.
As such, Design Indaba’s YDS gives students and professionals the opportunity to attend a live broadcast of the annual Design Indaba Conference in a second auditorium, at a discounted rate.
