More than 20 local designers gathered at M7, Msheireb Downtown Dohaand launched a unique environmental initiative, ‘Unwasted’.
It features thought provoking pieces including huge sand dunes made out of waste garments.
The exhibition will run until December 27.This will educate and inspire people to reduce, reuse, and recycle, with a particular focus on fashion.
Alongside the exhibition, there will also be a number of workshops you can sign up to.
“What we want to do is bring awareness and educate people, and start a conversation. This is not the end, this is not a solution. We are at a start of the journey to mitigate the problem itself,” said Sara, who was joined by event curator, art director and host Aldana al-Mesnad, event manager and host Jawaher al-Ahmed, waste-led design and environmental advisory Reem al-Sehlawi, all part of the Unwasted event team
The event was designed to foster strategic partnerships with influential local institutions and initiatives such as Msheireb Properties, Doha Film Institute, M7 and Qatar Reads, to magnify the sense of urgency in addressing an issue of national and global importance.
Unwasted also wants to support and raise awareness on local environmental initiatives and institutions such as the Dugong Research Project, Wahab and The Arab Youth Climate Movement.
There are limited spaces in each of the workshops, and you can sign up now on the unwasted exhibition website at www.unwasted.exposed/whats-on.
