Dubai Design Week is one of the most ambitious international design events in the world, conceived to shine a spotlight on Dubai as a leading design hub, and share the UAE’s thriving design scene with the world at large.
Dubai Design Week was established in 2015 by Art Dubai Group in partnership with Dubai Design District (d3), and is held under the dedicated patronage of Her Highness Sheikha Latifa bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice Chairman of the Dubai Culture & Arts Authority. Dubai Design Week is also supported by Dubai Design & Fashion Council and Dubai Culture & Arts Authority.
In Dubai’s collaborative spirit, and as a reflection of the city’s global outlook, its design week is made to be regional and international in it’s scope at the same time. It covers public and private spheres, education, culture and entertainment, and spans over various disciplines, such as graphic, product & industrial design, architecture, advertising, and more.
Visitors will also have chance to attend various keynote speeches, panel discussions, public performances and educational workshops that will all contribute to the topic of ‘What design means for the region and the world’.
In 2015, 23,000 visitors from around the world flocked to the city to discover the work and ideas of over 150 designers drawn from around the region and internationally. The success of the inaugural edition cemented the future of Dubai Design Week as an annual event.
