Interactive Africa Design Indaba Emerging Creatives Development Programme (1) The Emerging Creatives Development Programme, established in 2005, organised by Design Indaba and funded the DSAC provides opportunities to more than 40 emerging designers from various disciplines across South Africa to annually attend this Programme. In the last 6 years the number of beneficiaries ranged from 42 in 2014 to 57 in 2017. The aim of the Programme is to have a developmental platform for young creatives who have relatively little industry exposure. Design Indaba employs 5 persons on a permanent and 3 on a temporary/ casual basis to work on the Programme.
