Talabat (2022)

In 2022, Diaa Allam took part in the #CreativeCreavings initiative with Talabat, Dubai Culture, and Expo2020. As part of this initiative, one artist was hosted every month at the ‘Talabat Kitchen.’ The helmets were chosen to symbolize appreciation for delivery riders in the UAE and across the world. While the initiative aimed to foster the local arts scene and empower young artists, it also presented an opportunity for them to creatively depict the UAE’s ambition towards innovation and technological advancements. The initiative between Dubai Culture and Talabat aimed to foster the culinary arts scene at Expo 2020 Dubai and provide an outlet to highlight the connection between art, food, and technology.
