Good (UAE) - - EDITOR’S LETTER - Jen­nifer Gib­son ed­i­tor

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.
