Tashkeel presents Design+Making UAE at Dubai Design Week 2018



Design+Making UAE is the destination for those curious about the local design ecosystem. Staged by Tashkeel, Dubai’s art and design incubator that has been enabling UAE designers since 2008, this specially devised showcase will demonstrate design practice in the UAE from concept to completion. Featuring a dynamic programme of workshops, talks and conversations with partners including Khatt Foundation and Dubai Network for Art, Architecture & Technology alongside a retail pop-up of affordable products by Tashkeel creatives.

The exhibition will include presentations on Make Works UAE network, which connects suppliers and fabricators to designers and artists nationwide alongside a showcase of designs produced through the Tanween programme, which sees products by UAE based designers supported from concept to completion. The new collection from Tanween will be showcased at Downtown Editions, within the Downtown Design fair.

Operating on an open membership model, Tashkeel’s annual programme of training, residencies, workshops, talks, exhibitions, international collaborations and publications aims to further practitioner development, public engagement, lifelong learning and the creative and cultural industries. Design+Making UAE is set to be a unique insight into this set of project and talent.
