Design Camp with Nuqat

Design Camp was a collaboration between Nuqat and Art Studio Kwt. The workshop began by inviting its participants to explore their own visual vocabulary and culture through collage, bricolage, photos, sketching, mosaics and more.



They began by asking questions of ; How are the arts conceivably the best tool for design-related and community-building work we want to do in the 21st century?

Through exploration we can understand the importance of scripts harmonization, concept development, bricolage, visual design and simplification to convey messages that best represent us best within our own social spaces.



The use of concept mapping is used to mark the stages of the process throughout the workshop.

Body Creative Immersions
