Q&A

Rawan Kashk­oush, Head of Pro­gram­ming at Dubai De­sign Week

What's On (Dubai) - - DESIGNS IN DUBAI -

What’s your top tip for A kRST-TIME VIS­I­TOR TO De­sign Week?

Down­load the app and sched­ule your ex­pe­ri­ences from the hourly op­tions, of­fer­ing a stage for mul­ti­ple vis­its. Down­town De­sign and Global Grad Show need plenty of time to cover con­sid­er­ing their size and den­sity. Plan ahead to get the best of both shows. Across the city one shouldn’t miss an ar­chi­tec­tural tour of the Jameel Arts Cen­tre, Form Ho­tel, a food tour in Karama by Fry­ing Pan Ad­ven­tures, Alserkal Av­enue’s pro­gramme of ex­hi­bi­tions and tour of Con­crete.

I’m on a tight bud­get. Will I be able to pick up a piece to take home?

We make it a point to make the en­tire week ac­ces­si­ble to the pub­lic in as many ways as pos­si­ble. Down­town Edi­tions, in­side the fair will have an en­tirely pur­chasable show­case of prod­ucts from in­di­vid­ual stu­dios, mak­ers, de­sign col­lab­o­ra­tions and emerg­ing de­sign­ers. Also, our in­stal­la­tions and ex­hi­bi­tions are un­for­get­table ex­pe­ri­ences. At the very least, you will take home great mem­o­ries.

Can I bring my kids?

Of course! The week­end will of­fer work­shops for young chil­dren at our ded­i­cated Mak­ing Space and, for the teens and older, YouTube will present its Cre­ator Meet-Up, bring­ing top con­tent cre­ators to meet their fans. There will also be a park pep­pered with ex­per­i­men­tal ar­chi­tec­tural in­stal­la­tions and Ripe mar­ket re­turns to d3 with a road clo­sure de­signed to feel like a pedes­trian style souk.
