“I hope that through this program I will be able to contribute to convince people in Lebanon (and abroad) of the importance of Design as a discipline and as a tool for social advancement, encompassing mere commodities. And I also hope to, one day, take part in bringing the Lebanese design scene into playing an important role in setting the discourses in the field of art and design.”
