International Art and Design Conference: Radical Futures
"Why call an art and design conference ‘radical’?
Because we know there are answers and solutions to our concerns; that it’s just a matter of connecting, and choosing to take action.
It’s this conviction that led to the theme for Tasmeem Doha 2022, international art and design conference organized every two years by VCUarts Qatar, since 2004.
At Radical Futures, we bring you talks, workshops, panel discussions, film screenings and exhibitions, where world-renowned designers, practitioners, researchers, and thinkers join hands with the public to talk about topics that matter: climate resilience, architecture, geopolitics, urbanism, data science, and entrepreneurship, to name but a few.
What will you be hearing and talking about?
Inclusion, Post colonialism, Indigenous Knowledge, Language, Geology, Energy Systems, Environment, Sustainability, Smart Materials, Circular Economies, Curatorial Activism, Biotechnology, Augmented Realities… practically every facet of your life.
In case you’re wondering about our history, we do have a reputation for facing the music full on – previous editions attracted regional and international media, giving our presenters such as Sir David Adjaye Obe, Julia Leeb, Rem Koolhaas, and Marco Williams, and our partners such as the German Embassy in Doha, Goethe-Institut, Qatar Foundation, Qatar Museums, Mathaf, and Doha Film Institute a global platform to highlight issues that they believed in.
Today, it’s your chance to join the conversation."
