Quoz Arts Fest: Crowdsourced 3.0

We have partnered up with DesignAware, an interdisciplinary design studio, to create a crowdsourced art installation. We invite you to join the movement and help build an interactive public art installation for Alserkal Avenue’s Quoz Arts Fest on January 25th and 26th. Join us for a fun weekend and make sure to contribute your part in this exciting initiative. 

The two-day Quoz Art Fest is free and open to the whole family, including pets, with parent and kid-friendly activities including performances, workshops, tours, film screenings, food concepts, and live music.

Crowdsourced is an initiative to engage the community in the design process. Crowdsourced 3.0: Quoz Arts Edition will be an ever-growing art installation made of interlocking cardboard pieces, digitally fabricated and assembled by the public over the duration of the festival. The activity is open to all and free to attend, there's no right or wrong, and the rules are simple: connect the flat pieces in any way you want. You can intuitively choose how to connect pieces and in which direction you’d like to grow the installation. This way, everyone adds something and leaves behind their mark embedded in the installation.

People from all age-groups, backgrounds and abilities can come together to assemble this organic and unpredictable art piece made entirely from recycled cardboard, which can be disassembled and reassembled in many different configurations. At the end of the festival, the outcome is a truly crowdsourced artwork that has been built by individual contributions from the Alserkal community.
