With eyes set on the future, final-year students, recent graduates, or early careerists are invited to join us.
Risk-taking creatives and change-making innovators take you through the tools and technologies revolutionizing businesses.
Explore how the evolving role of design creates an impact on both business and culture across two days.
This one’s for the architects and designers of tomorrow. We’ll explore the tools needed for innovators.
The Tanween Tools workshops offer skills-development sessions designed to unlock an innovative new you as you discover smart new strategies for creative success.
Learn from the masters of innovation and creativity. Gain knowledge first-hand from creative leaders in intimate, engaging sessions.
Knowledge is the accumulation of experiences but while information is widely accessible today, seek the wisdom behind the method.
Like “Disruption”, “Play” and “The New Next” before it, this year’s theme “Tools” will explore an aspect of the creative process and tap into how cultural and creative industries continue to innovate and steer the future of the creative economy – highlighting the tools at their disposal.
From the first stone hammer to modern-day technology, tools enable our creativity to shape our world. From hand and head tools to digital and physical tools, and abstract and real toolsets, Tanween 2021 explores the role Tools have in our creative process and industries and crafting our creativity for the future.
Date: October 27, 2021 – November 13, 2021
“Work with whatever tools you may have at your command, and better tools will be found as you go along.” - George Herbert, poet.
Join us for Ithra’s unique Tanween 2021 moments. We will use drones that present interactive experiences between audiences and the drones; to create pictures and shapes in the sky through words written in light, and views and texts that can be moved around by controlling drones around Ithra. There will be more than 1,500 people and 300 drones, where we will produce the first light images created by humans and drones working together. Share the experience with us, and be part of our Tanween moment!
