During my traineeship at Disarming Design From Palestine I assisted in exhibitions, events, pop-up shops and presentations at various institutions in Belgium, Holland, Luxembourg, Palestine, including Nieuwe Kerk The Hague, Nieuwe Instituut Rotterdam, MUDAM Luxembourg, WIELS Brussels, The Palestinian Museum Birzeit, Minard Theatre Gent and Design Museum Gent.
- Announcing a new collaboration! -
For the next few months I will be part of Disarming Design From Palestine team. Assisting Annelys de Vet, initiator of the project, in Brussels and Ghadeer Dajani, Raed Shams in Ramallah, Palestine.
Disarming Design From Palestine aims to spread alternative narratives about contemporary Palestine and reflect upon the function of creative practices in situations of conflict. The design label presents and sells useful goods from Palestine, designed by contemporary designers and artists in collaboration with local producers and artisans.
The project focuses on the development of local design and production capacity through creative processes. By stimulating interdisciplinary working relationships new artistic models are empowered. Art and design are deployed as powerful tools that allow serious discussions within a community about the political, social and cultural realities. It approaches design as a platform for discourse. How can creative practices contribute to a more sustainable society and human-centered economy?

Material Futures students re-think the future.
We explore the intersection of craft, science and technology and aim to look beyond existing boundaries.
We combine social, political and economic inquiry to inform future, sustainable design applications. Our research projects focus on a range of diverse subjects such as: materiality in the digital world, the future of medical care, sustainable energy, migration in the 21st century and the potential of synthetic biology.
