This year, Dubai Design Week will again take place at its main hub in Dubai Design District (d3), from November 9-14, 2020, presenting original experiences with physical distancing measures in place and with a focus on addressing the role of the creative community in redefining the way we will live in the near and far future.

Adapting to new realities and current shifts, the festival will offer new opportunities for the creative community by giving centre stage to the local and regional talent. The revised programme includes an open call for the Abwab 2020 pavilion, a new UAE-designer focussed exhibition, a thematic focus for outdoor installations and public interventions, and a hybrid talks programme that challenges pressing topics and creates dialogue, continuing to engage our global audiences.
