Make Works UAE is a Tashkeel initiative supported by Dubai Culture.
In January 2023, Dubai Culture and Arts Authority signed an agreement with Tashkeel to develop the ‘Make Works UAE’ portal. Both parties cooperate to build the Make Works UAE e-platform, in particular the directory’s content profiling manufacturing and production services through a five-year agreement (2022-2027) to ensure its sustainability and growing value as an open access information provider, expanding the number of profiles on local manufacturers, fabricators and suppliers.
