it’s something many of us aspire to, but the day-to-day drudgery of the 9 to 5 (or, let’s be honest, the 8 to 7) can take its toll on even the most inventive mind – and that’s before you factor in stresses over rent and bills, things that simply aren’t payable in the currency of pure imagination, whatever Willy Wonka might have us believe.
But the Uae’s start-up scene is nonethleless burgeoning, and a host of young entrepreneurs are now looking to make the quest for a creative life ever more achievable. From shared workspaces to residences aimed squarely at next generation of artistic movers and shakers, the growth of developments like Alserkal and d3 and the arrival of the third dubai design Week, the Uae’s landscape is changing.
this edition is a celebration of new ideas, from our pick of the upcoming programme at d3 to our favourite evening classes to get your creative juices flowing. We hope it leaves you feeling inspired.
