The Emerging creatives Design Indaba 2019 presentation was a presentation given by Wikimedia ZA president Discott on the 25th February 2019 to young designers at the 2019 Design Indaba. Wikimedia ZA was invited by the organisers of Design Indaba to present to promising young South African designers on Wikipedia and how to participate in the open knowledge movement. The one hour presentation focused on what Wikipedia is, the public good of contributing to free knowledge such as Wikipedia and Commons, how to add content to both Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons and an introduction to the Graphics Lab. The Graphics Lab was presented as the best possible place for people with design skills to contribute to Wikimedia projects.

The group of around 40 designers seems enthusiastic at the prospect of adding content to Commons.
