Icograda Design Week in Qatar
Mousharaka | Icograda Design Week in Qatar will be composed of two parts: the Education Symposium and the Professional Conference.
The Education Symposium provides opportunities for educators to share research, pedagogy, and new thinking on the theme of collaboration; students will engage in two-day design workshops culminating in an exhibition of the best work.
The Professional Conference will present 4 keynote speakers and 8 prominent presenters who will share their perspectives on design and design collaborations. There will be many opportunities to engage in conversation during networking lunches and breaks with all speakers, participants and attendees.
Mousharaka will also launch Design Debate Doha—an opportunity for the design community to address an important global design issue in debate form.
Mousharaka | Icograda Design Week in Qatar will take advantage of the interesting venues that Doha has to offer. VCUQatar, with its state-of-the-art facilities will serve as the main site for the conference. There will also be events in Souk Waqif (a traditional bazaar), museums and select outdoor venues.
