DOHA WITNESSES ‘NIGHT OF IDEAS'
Msheireb Museums, the new cultural destination located at Msheireb Downtown Doha, in partnership with Institut Français du Qatar, hosted the ‘Night of Ideas' earlier this year under the theme: ‘Power to the Imagination: DOHA 2022 - PARIS 2024'.
Launched by Institut Français in 2017, the ‘Night of Ideas' is a global project staged simultaneously around the world, from Tokyo to Los Angeles and Stockholm to Johannesburg, where people gather to celebrate ideas. This year, Msheireb Museums brought together design leaders at Bin Jelmood House to join 41 other cities across five continents taking part in the global innovation initiative.
The event welcomed four expert Arab and European panellists who were involved in three discussion points with the audience – ‘the main challenges facing urban areas in Doha and Paris,' ‘how major events can help shape cities,' and ‘if public spaces can humanise cities'.
