As NYUAD has grown into a leading liberal arts institution, student-led visual design has played a major role in the evolution of NYUAD’s identity, community and global reputation. Students and faculty have done professional-level projects both for NYUAD’s own research and events and for international organizations such as WWF UAE, the Xenon Lab and ArabWIC. Every design project has engaged questions of identity, accessibility, empowerment and culture in new ways. On the occasion of the opening of the Design Works exhibit, this panel explores how those conversations have developed over the past decade and sets a course for the future of design education at NYUAD.

This event is open to the general public. Registration (using the form on this page) is required. Vaccination status will be verified at the door.
