3ajeeb!

Tasmeem Doha March 8–12, 2015

VCUQatar International Art & Design Festival in Doha, Qatar

Tasmeem is a biennial international art & design conference focusing on unique and contemporary themes within art & design. Each conference explores new ways of thinking, making, seeing and learning. The 2015 edition will focus on the theme of ‘playfulness’ by using an Arabizi word ‘3ajeeb!’ (ahh-jhee-b) which is a common expression meaning “strange in a strange way, cool in a cool way, and slightly weird in a slightly weird way.” This year the conference will become a festival and celebrate the strange, surprising, and playful in art and design.

The Festival Will Feature

3 days of workshops with artists, designers, musicians, writers, tinkerers, and playful thinkers

1 day of presentations and creative speakers who will inspire you

1 day of exhibitions, playful interactions, performances and all things 3ajeeb!
