We kick off our Dezeen and MINI World Tour at Design Indaba in Cape Town, South Africa. Founded in 1995, this annual three-day conference attracts high-profile international speakers from all creative disciplines.
On the bill this year are architect David Adjaye, designer Martí Guixé, advertising guru Sir John Hegarty, trend forecaster Li Edelkoort, and many more.
We'll be taking the pulse of the conference and interviewing the most exciting speakers, as well as exploring the spectacular city of Cape Town.
