- VENUE: Alserkal Avenue
In conjunction with Dubai Design Week (23 - 29 October), Alserkal Avenue presents a week of exhibitions and programmes that spotlight the designers and makers behind the best in design. The week begins with innovative design exhibitions, workshops, and product launches by design galleries and firms on the Avenue and beyond.
In parallel, we present talks, book launches, and special events in Nadi Al Quoz, that explore the intersections of design and making with architecture, urban planning and other creative forms. The week culminates in a three-day celebration of making and ingenuity.
The Yard will be taken over by the Market of Everything, a special event organized by Traffic, that brings local makers and DIY designers together to buy, sell, trade, donate, lend and rent their goods, skills and services. At the centre of the week, is The Makers, a three-day event organized by ikonhouse and Alserkal Avenue.
The Maker’s brings design firms together to showcase the artisans and engineers who work behind the scenes, demonstrating the tools and technology in architecture, design and making. This unique showcase of original works, and the processes involved in their creation, will take shape through a daily programme of activities and installations.
