Conversation about City EastWest
Arts District Location

Cities across the world are more than ever linked through various media networks, whether socially, culturally or economically. Dubai and Los Angeles not only share characteristics in the natural and physical environment but also in the high ‘media presence’, echoing the importance of storytelling.

The conversation brings together vital voices of Los Angeles’ and Dubai’s creative industry exploring the notion of global perception and its impact on city development. The project City EastWest aims to develop a narrative that connects the two urban creative hubs between East and West.

Los Angeles based architect Wes Jones and urban/media historian Norman Klein will be in conversation with Dubai based architect Adina Hempel and artist Janet Bellotto.
