AUK Hosts the MEDEA Symposium for the First Time in Kuwait

The College of Arts and Sciences at the American University of Kuwait announced that the Department of Art and Graphic Design at AUK will host the Middle East Design Educators Association (MEDEA) 2014 Symposium in December 2014. This is the first MEDEA Symposium in Kuwait. MEDEA Board Members from universities around the MENA region will conduct workshops for students and participate in roundtable discussions with design educators in Kuwait. The AUK MEDEA Board member is Assistant Professor Marcella Kulchisky of the Art and Graphic Design Department.

"We are very pleased to host this event," said Dr. Rawda Awwad, Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. "Our AUK Art and Graphic Design Department is looking forward to this event with MEDEA. There is great interest in potential collaborative opportunities as well as faculty and student exchange initiatives with other institutions in the region."

Founded in 2008, the Middle East Design Educators Association serves as an inspirational and informational platform for design educators in the Middle East. MEDEA provides an opportunity to share ideas, methods, challenges and opportunities, and to foster dialogue between the design industry and those who educate the next generation of designers. MEDEA is affiliated with the AIGA (American Institute of Graphic Arts) Design Educators Community located in the United States.
