Where creativity meets industry 

Dubai Design District (D3) is where creatives can meet, exchange ideas and insights, exhibit their work and plan the sector’s future trajectory. D3’s connectivity and strategic location drive a calendar of high-profile events all year round, including Dubai Design Week, Arab Fashion Week and Sole DXB.

In 2023, Dubai introduced the 'Make Works UAE' portal- a collaborative platform between the creative sector and local manufacturers, fabricators and suppliers, created by Dubai Culture in partnership with Tashkeel. This initiative underscores the significance of the industrial sector in bolstering cultural and creative industries, reflecting Dubai Culture's dedication to fostering an environment conducive to talents, entrepreneurs and creative SMEs. Aligned with the goal of empowering local talent, sparking innovation and establishing the city as a vibrant hub for artistic and cultural pursuits, the portal epitomises Dubai's commitment to nurturing its creative ecosystem.
