Tag: RAW Talent
The Gallery at VCUarts Qatar dedicated an entire issue to Raw Talent.
We did this because we know raw talent is prized. Especially when it’s been identified, yet remains untapped; when it’s been nurtured, yet retains its fervor.
We’ve done the identifying and nurturing for you – the raw talent of our Graduates is untapped, agile and exploratory. Our Alumni are broadening their horizons and immersing themselves in the possibilities that diverse networks bring them.

Tag: Community Spirit
Artists and designers in this first issue signpost themselves with powerful tools of expression.
They choose to unlock the potential of people who have otherwise felt unheard, or unseen. Their personas resonate with the social affiliation they have with their communities; their words and actions confidently declare that inclusion can be stylish too.
For this breed, one’s identity is more than a collection of eye-catching clothes or images; more than the insular efforts to be exclusive. Rather, they represent the collective force born from connections forged through ideas, art and design.

Tag: Remembering Home
Discover our new exhibition and lectures through artists and designers who create opportunities for affiliation and recognition that contribute to diasporic collective memory. Their narratives show solidarity as resilience through the construction of imaginaries by the art of documenting, collecting and archiving.
Read our stories that prove that nostalgia can be restorative sometimes, and redefine the meaning of home.

Tag: Futuristic Narratives
Artists and Designers in this issue are creative storytellers spinning alternate narratives, acting like ‘archeologist of the future’ – crafting stories, objects and experiences that let us peek where we will go, where we have been like a path of breadcrumbs guiding us towards tomorrow. They lead the march toward the future with new visions, and often lean on innovation to propel their progress.
We all want to see the future – do you want to join us?
