HYBRID MAKING: TASMEEM DOHA
Type: Conferences & Symposia [View all]
Posted by: Virginia Commonwealth University in Qatar
Tasmeem Doha is an international design conference held biennially at Virginia Commonwealth University in Qatar, a branch campus of VCU’s School of the Arts in Richmond, VA. Over the past eight years, Tasmeem has gathered scholars and practitioners of art and design to discuss critical issues and engage with students and local communities.
The 2013 conference addresses the dual themes of hybridization—interdisciplinary or collaborative work—and making—the production of an outcome or deliverable to be disseminated in the final phase of the conference.
We believe that creativity and the act of making are key components in forming Qatar’s sustainable future. In order to create a tenable knowledge society, a reflection upon creative processes is crucial. The intent of the conference is to open up a discussion of the creative process, makings in societies, and social makings, with a focus on Doha and the region.
