Reasons to Love Traffic, and I’m not talking about the traffic jam
Traffic is one of my favorite spaces in town! It was created in 2007 and is located in one of the large warehouses in Al Qouz, Dubai. Traffic is an open concept studio that serves as a social studies forum, where you will find a great library, art work, and occasional gatherings from members of the community including Artists, Designers, Musicians, Poets, Book lovers and much more.
Once walking into traffic you won’t help but notice the big laser cutter, a CNC router, and three different types of sewing machines as well as different machinery that are available for the public to use. The studio provides tools, training and space for members of the community, where they come to work on their individual projects, as well as to take part in different workshops.
Traffic has a great collection of books, exhibition catalogs and magazines as well as a wide variety of collection of feature length films, documentaries, and animations in its Circulating Library. You can pass by and enjoy any available book of your interest and spend the afternoon reading it while enjoying a warm cup of coffee sitting on one their extremely comfortable sofas.
Traffic host a series of great events and performances so if you would like to find out more about Traffic [Studio] visit their website.
Hope you visit the space soon and enjoy it!
