Jameel Library Reading Groups continue with another session of ArtEd. In this iteration, participants delve into texts and other materials that expand on Art education within both global and regional contexts.
In this session, participants will be reading from Ad Land by Mark Tungate and a supplementary text. The session is led in English by Professor of Advertising (Creative) Dina Faour. The discussion will be directed as an examination of the text within a local educational context, focusing on teaching creative advertising and the integration of contextual components into a curriculum. The reading groups are free and open to all.
Registration is required, as space is limited. Registered participants are expected to commit to the reading material and to attend the session they have registered to maintain a respectful, informed and open discursive environment.
Please register via the RSVP button.
