DGPS Art students fascinated by visit to“The Global Grad Show- 2017”

Stunning design projects, innovative technological adaptations and the creative genius of students from over 90 different global Universities, were on display at the Global Grad Show 2017 at the Dubai Design District.

DGPS Art students from Years 10 – 12 were fortunate to be able to view the exhibition, accompanied by Ms. Maria, Ms. Vijita and Ms. Anusha, on November 14. The Global Grad Show is an event that aims to build a community of creative excellence which challenges and surpasses the expectations of a typical society.

The show saw a wide-ranging display of over 200 captivating design projects submitted by the cream of design teams from over 90 international universities. The display also included a nostalgic exhibition of Graphics RCA, that celebrated the evolution of Graphic Design from the early 60’s to modern day.


The ABWAB tent made of recycled mattress springs that showcased various art pieces, posters and even furniture from around the Middle East region, was of special interest to the students. Meanwhile, Ikea showed off a play of concepts that aroused the child within the viewer to see joy and comfort in all the furniture exhibited there.

It was indeed a wonderful and fascinating learning experience for the students of Art from DGPS, with each student having come away with something valuable to learn from the myriad manifestations of art forms on view at the show!
