Global Grad Show Projects
Global Grad Show is an annual exhibition of groundbreaking projects from design schools around the world. Launched in 2015 as a part of Dubai Design Week, the second edition of Global Grad Show was composed of 145 projects from 50 leading universities, selected by the award-winning curator Brendan McGetrick. Rather than sectioning them off in school-specific zones, at Global Grad Show the works are mixed together and organised according to what a project does, rather than what it is. Exhibits in the Empower section offered new ways to spark ideas and expand abilities. The Connection section was concerned with encouraging exchange and building community. Sustain was a survey of innovative approaches to reducing waste and generating energy.
