Tanween is back: Experience it all from Nov. 1-4

Tanween Ithra’s Creativity Conference، is back for its sixth edition at Ithra, and this time, we’re diving deep into the theme of "Scale.” Scale in design isn't just about measuring and quantifying; it's a dynamic concept that spans from macro to micro, encompassing ratios, sizes and relationships among various elements. We're not simply exploring scale quantitatively; we're delving into its qualitative impacts.


From architecture to fashion, graphic design and more, our creative visitors will examine the diverse methods and perspectives of applying the concept of scale in various design fields. By understanding how to leverage scale effectively, they will uncover innovative solutions to today's challenges. 


Join us at Tanween from Nov. 1-4 at the Great Hall as we celebrate the scalability of design and its profound possibilities.
