DHAHRAN: The King Abdul Aziz Center for World Culture (Ithra) launched its Tanween Challenges program on Thursday. The program, which runs from Aug. 27 to Oct. 18, will encourage participants to work with industry experts to design and develop projects and products to benefit Saudi Arabia.
The five challenges announced so far on Ithra’s website are: “Reimagining the Crafts of Saudi Arabia,” “The Future of Creative Placemaking,” “Creativity Needs You,” “Cardboard Furniture” and “A New Outdoors.” Participants will discuss ideas and existing projects in each field, and attempt to create their own product or project.
