The week-long event returns with a larger more diverse programme, strengthening Dubai’s position as a global hub for the design and creative industries. Dubai Design Week will take place across the city with over 550 designers participating in a six-day celebration of ground-breaking design and ideas, free for all to attend. Key features will include the return of the Global Grad Show, Downtown design and the popular Abwab exhibition as well as an extensive programme of talks, workshops, exhibitions and installations.
Sheikha Latifa Bint Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, said: “It is with admiration that I witness the growth of the design scene here in Dubai from a humble beginning of a group of galleries, makers and design enthusiasts to flourishing into an international hub for established and emerging designers and design studios from all over the world. At the heart of these initiatives, the third edition of Dubai Design Week will showcase the power of positive change through youth with the Global Grad Show, bringing together a dialogue of designers from all over the region within one space at Abwab, while Downtown Design keeps meeting the increasing demand on high quality design within the regional market—I look forward to exploring what this year’s design season will bring.”
