AUK Participates in REUSE 5.0

The American University of Kuwait participated in the annual REUSE 5.0 exhibition, held this year on the premises of the Australian College of Kuwait (ACK).

During the exhibition, a number of AUK students and professors showcased their work under two categories; the Social Programs category and the Community category. The AUK exhibits included artwork made of reused or re-purposed materials that promote environmental conservation. The AUK delegation was led by Professor William Andersen of the Art and Graphic Design Program, and Professor Charles Cange of the newly introduced Environmental Studies Minor Program at AUK. AUK's Environmental Studies Program is the first of its kind in Kuwait.

Organized by the En.V Initiative, the 4-day REUSE 5.0 featured a dynamic mix of art galleries, music, short films, a lounge, trendy eco- fashion, accessories and more. The last day of the event celebrated Earth Day, bringing in the renowned Moroccan artist and photographer Hassan Hajjaj and the award winning Graphic Designer, Tarek Atrissi, who both gave short inspirational talks on incorporating eco-friendly thought into creative art projects.

REUSE 5.0 serves as an opportunity for non-profit organizations, companies, professionals and aspiring creative talents to showcase their accomplishments in the fields of social responsibility and sustainability. REUSE aims to promote eco-friendly living and provide a platform for those who strive to incorporate this principle into their work.
