Exhibition

REPORTING FROM THE FIELD

This exhibition transfers the audience directly to the humanitarian front and specifically inside the design studio LATRA Innovation Lab which is situated in a refugee camp in Lesbos, Greece.

The show follows the work of LATRA, which set up the LATRA INNOVATION LAB directly inside refugee camps in Greece. The lab acts as an innovative incubator that brings together an international network of social organizations, enterprises, governments, non-government organizations (NGOs), and intra-governmental organizations (IGOs) as well as independent designers, makers and innovators for the purpose of developing socially impactful solutions directly in the field.

The show also displays design outcomes of Core Relief: The 1st International Humanitarian Design Workshop that took place in Lesbos Greece in October 2016.

REPORTING FROM THE FIELD is curated by Aris Papadopoulos, founder of LATRA, an award-winning incubator specializing in socially responsible projects that promote innovation, technology and entrepreneurship in the humanitarian sector and Maja Kinnemark, Assistant Professor in Interior Design at VCUarts Qatar.
