The first edition of the Saudi Design Festival has kicked off in AX District in Riyadh.


Focusing on the power of transformation in and by design, the festival will bring communities together to celebrate great design, reimagine the future, connect, and create our presence on the global culture and creative map.


Spearheaded and organized by the team behind Saudi Design Week (2014-2019), Oasis Company, Saudi Design Festival is the first of its kind in The Kingdom and will be led with the vision of creating a platform that stewards discourse, provides local talents with opportunities, and fosters communities that contribute to national development.


The festival will feature exhibitions showcasing the work of local and international design talent as well as workshops aimed to stimulate the creativity of visitors, particularly young talent.


This is the first time talented creatives from the region have come together in this manner, allowing them to share knowledge and ideas as well as showcase their talent.


The festival is expected to attract industry experts from Saudi Arabia, the Middle East and even further afield.


Saudi Design Festival runs from January 9 – 29, 2022 at JAX District, Diriyah and is open from 17:00 to 22:00 every Sunday until Thursday, and 12:00 to 22:00 every Friday and Saturday.
