|“MADAR, an initiative supported by Dubai Design District (d3) and taking place within Downtown Editions, will highlight the current climate of regional design, mapping out creativity from Beirut, Egypt, Jordan, Palestine and Kuwait.
By approaching thematics related to craft preservation by innovative production techniques, material innovation by upcycling and recycling waste materials, and reducing manufacturing waste with digital fabrication technologies, attention will be drawn to the ways in which these approaches to design empower creatives by offering them options across the large design spectrum and allowing them to experiment, innovate and partake in designing for impact and positive change.”
“Dubai Design Week will host over 60 free-to-attend workshops in Dubai Design District (d3) for design professionals and public visitors alike. Workshops range from digital design and fabrication, to origami and ceramics. “
