Descend – Issue 30
Published Nov/Dec 2017
A note from our Managing Editor, Reham Alawadhi:
Our theme for this year was aerodynamics, highlighting how ideas take flight. We began by ascending into 2017. We soared through the skies, scaled our challenges and surged through them; we rose above obstacles to finally descend into the end of the year, wrapping up our aerodynamic journey.
This issue we have the ladies behind the Abolish 153 campaign gracing our cover. The Abolish 153 campaign aims to abolish article 153 from Kuwait’s penal code, which gives men regulatory, judicial, and executive power over their female kin.
Over in Doha, Qatar we have Wa’hab, an organization that redistributes surplus food to those in need. In New Mexico, USA, we have Zahraa Marwan, a Kuwaiti illustrator with a very interesting backstory. We also learned more about Emirati/American Composer Mohammed Fairouz.
The year may be ending but keep an eye out for the first issue of 2018, falling under our new yearly theme, maritime.
Please note: Issues will be delivered starting December 15, 2017
