Dubai Design Week 2020 is different from all its precedents. Adapting to new realities and current shifts, this year’s edition will be addressing the role and responsibilities of designers, creatives and creative industry stakeholders in redefining the way we live in the near and long term future.

We are already witnessing a collective creative response in solving crisis and we would like to amplify this response by inviting designers to present ideas and proposals that will contribute in re-imaging traditional processes and approaches for a better shared and fair future.

Themes related to locality, collective work, future imagining and sharing of public space under physical and mobility restrictions are put forward in this year’s edition for designers and creatives to investigate.
