Zoe Hawk is an artist who shows us the mysterious world of girls, mostly innocent and sometimes vicious. Her works are deep yet easy to understand, they touch the issues of childhood, social adaptation, gender. If you have ever been a girl you will relate. In case you haven’t… Well, we talked with Zoe about much more than that. So join us while we try to answer the eternal questions of what is art and how do we know. And while you listen, visit her website: zoehawk.com or instagram: @zoe.hawk

There is a special kind of place. A place we usually go to on a school trip, often visit as tourists when traveling to other countries. We know they’re important, but often don’t visit them in our own hometowns.

Museums are meant to make a community.

They are a non-profit institution built to preserve our culture, to share it with us, to provide us with means of discussion and reflection on who we are. With our guest Safa Arshad, we’ll find out what the museums of Doha have for us to learn.

Between the the worlds of food abundance and scarcity in Qatar there is a bridge. It’s called Wa’Hab which means “to give” - a Doha based initiative that brings excess food from those who have it to those who need it. In this episode we talk to some of the authors of this elegant solution to a whole string of problems at once.

For large portion of time there was virtually one way most people could see the world outside of their hometown. They couldn’t go to far off places but they could see those places through the eyes of a travel photographer. Someone brave who took on a risky journey, brought a camera and captured the world for them to see.

These days everybody takes pictures and most of us even travel occasionally. Does that make us all travel photographers? Not really. Apparently there’s something more to it. What exactly is that we’ll find out with the help of our guest Lubaib Gazir, a travel photographer based in Doha.

Originally from Kuwait, Wala’a found herself in Doha as a student, and later as an interior designer in Japan. Since then, she has taken an interest in colours and the important roles they play in our lives. Join us as we discuss the importance of incorporating the right colours through design and meditation.

It all began in the early 1900’s when women in New York stood up for their right to be heard. Fast forward to 2017 and we’ve seen a drastic change in women’s rights; however there’s still much to be done. Join me as I discuss the importance of this very special day, and highlight a woman who continues to inspire through love and passion.
