Fikra Campus

Fikra Campus launched in 2017 as a design-led communal space created to connect and enable creatives and entrepreneurs. It comprises a co-working space, a café, a gallery, a library, and an active urban rooftop. Fikra Campus hosts a wide range of educational programs throughout the year in the form of exhibitions, workshops, talks, and summer programs. It also offers a 3-month residency program for conducting design-research. The space was created to facilitate the creation of projects related to my research interests.

Fikra Graphic Design Biennial

Fikra Graphic Design Biennial is set to launch in November 2018. It is the first International Graphic Design Biennial in the Middle East, North Africa, and South Asia. The Biennial proposes graphic design as an integral part of contemporary civic life, looks at the expanded field of graphic design, and questions the role of graphic designers. It is a platform for professionals and the general public that encourages the formulation of innovative and pioneering ideas related to the field of graphic design.
