Pop-in expo | Thursday Night live!Ines Marques
Thursday 5.30pm, Room 1, Nieuwe Instituut Rotterdam.
We are presenting the results and discuss the observations of the recent workshop where eleven designers designed items that could pass on the stories that were shared in Gaza Camp, reflecting on the unbearable reality and the situation of Palestinian refugees.
Designer / founder Annelys de Vet will provide the introduction and context, participating designers and Sandberg Master students Tessa Meeus and Asja Keeman present their products and intern Isabel Zoetbrood gives an insight in the process after the workshop following up the production of the resulting products with the artisans. Subsequently Jonas Staal will respond to the presented items and narratives, including the designs by Rebekka Fries, Qusai Al Saify, Fida Shafi, Rida She, Mohammad Ishtay, Rand Abu Shaar, Nour Victor, Mariam Shukri and Aya Abu Ghazaleh.
