Fikra: Design As A Tool to Investigate Culture

6.00 pm - 7.00 pm
Join us for a talk on the evolution of Fikra and their approach to the mobilization of design as a means to investigate culture.Fikra is a design organisation founded by Salem Al-Qassimi in 2006. At its origin Fikra consisted of a Graphic Design Studio, which evolved into a fully-fledged design research organisation comprising a community space (Fikra Campus: a co-working space, a design studio, a cafe’, a gallery and a specialised library) located in Sharjah. Such expansion allowed to establish Fikra as an international platform for cutting-edge initiatives such as the Fikra Graphic Design Biennial (2018), and Fikra Design in Residency (2018, 2019, 2021).
