Restart The Art


Brought to you by the [sameness] project

We’re all familiar with the big white labourer buses that zig zag the streets of the UAE, travelling from one location to the next, carrying the men who help
create iconic skylines. 
Well, what if those buses weren’t so white anymore?

LIVE IN COLOUR & ON THE STREETS!

Restart The Art is a [sameness] project initiative (read more about us at www.thesamenessproject.com) turning those big white labourer buses into moving works of art. Telling the stories of the construction workers who ride inside and the artists who work together with them to bring colour and goodness to the streets of Dubai.

The artwork covering the buses was created in a unique collaboration between a group of construction workers and UAE-based artists/art students. The public followed the action online and voted on the artwork, with the final launch of the creatively transformed buses taking place at an exhibition at thejamjar in Al Quoz 16 - 18 April 2015.
