2016-02-20T22:00:00Z8Watershed, Workshp17The Emerging Creatives Class of 2016 – South Africa's hottest upcoming creative talent – debut at an exhibition presented by DAC at the V&A Watershed during #DI2016 from 19 to 21 Feb.​The Emerging Creatives programme is a developmental platform for young creatives who have relatively little industry exposure. Design Indaba established the Emerging Creatives programme in 2005 because of a strong belief in nurturing this new creative talent and knocking down the barriers to entry for those getting started. Going on 10 years, and with the fundamental changes in the media landscape and the local design industry, we have endeavoured to make the programme even more relevant in the South African context. The Emerging Creatives' work will be showcased to retail buyers and media from around the world. A year-long programme of support, mentorship and guidance in how to manage and grow small businesses will run alongside the opportunity to show their creative work to further propel their creative careers.Architects, fashion designers, illustrators, furniture designers or jewellers – all sectors are welcome and participants are selected based on the quality and originality of their work and its ability to stand alongside world-class designGP0|#7ccdc7d9-6e1b-4ee7-920a-61db1a388eb5;L0|#07ccdc7d9-6e1b-4ee7-920a-61db1a388eb5|Portswood Garage;GTSet|#77ffa18a-c716-4e28-9e0f-14946dccab8f021 465 9966expo[at]designindaba.comwww.designindaba.com/events/emerging-creatives-2016https://www.facebook.com/designindabahttps://twitter.com/designindabahttps://www.pinterest.com/designindaba/https://www.instagram.com/designindaba/Design Indaba, creatives, emerging, art<img alt="" src="/sites/waterfrontcontent/Home%20Page%20Images/emerging%20creatives%20380.jpeg" style="BORDER:0px solid;" />GP0|#1e62a820-63c0-4025-bd17-1296cae69373;L0|#01e62a820-63c0-4025-bd17-1296cae69373|Art and Culture;GTSet|#75375da6-0815-46ce-a6c6-47b9173f8b31GP0|#613ee27b-c815-43c4-9df3-678e4ac410a2;L0|#0613ee27b-c815-43c4-9df3-678e4ac410a2|February;GTSet|#355f269d-aab9-44ed-8fa8-0a2190be40d801<img alt="" src="/sites/waterfrontcontent/Home%20Page%20Images/emerging%20creatives%20265x180.jpeg" style="BORDER:0px solid;" /><div class="ExternalClass956F543A3C9A4962B3D983BE01FE202C"><p>​N/A</p></div>09h00 - 17h00FreeGP0|#523795ac-6af7-47df-99ff-725cf7fb5731;L0|#0523795ac-6af7-47df-99ff-725cf7fb5731|emerging-creatives-design-indaba;GTSet|#8dbb8159-f73a-4db5-89b5-12dd3cd66408Watershed, Workshp17The Emerging Creatives Class of 2016 – South Africa's hottest upcoming creative talent
