You don’t have to be a cultural connoisseur to see that the Arab world is culturally reacting to the Arab Spring. The music. The art. The writing. It’s a natural cycle of expression.
What you probably can’t do without a mind and an eye for culture is delve deep into the driving mechanics behind the current boom of creativity. But that’s why initiatives like ReDesign Arabia are founded. That’s why spaces like Darat Al-Funun are in existence. And that’s why you can’t possibly miss out on the current event happening at Darat Al-Funun’s “The Lab”: a ReDesign Arabia exhibition that explores the role of design, design thinking and designers in a post revolutionary Arab world.
Go with your thinking hat on, and bring your reading glasses. “Design Will Save the (Arab) World” is an exhibition that should happen more in your head.
