In this episode our founder Nour Hassan speaks to Antonia Carver, Director of Art Jameel. The episode dives into Tarabot: Weaving a Living Forum a pavilion designed by regenerative Beirut-Based consultancy and architecture practice theOtherDada founded by Adib Dada, showcasing innovative materials developed locally and inaugurated at COP28 Duabi, UAE.

Tarabot
is commissioned by Art Jameel and supported by Abdul Latif Jameel Saudi Arabia. The pavilion tells the story of the UAE’s landscapes through material and design, Tarabot is a pioneering, sustainable and immersive structure hosting talks, presentations and community programmes during COP28 and through April 2024.

Jameel Arts Centre serves as a home during COP28 and beyond for multidisciplinary members of the local and the international community working across culture and climate change.

Antonia Carver commented, “Tarabot is a radical space that pioneers exciting new research and architectural materials and also actively engages the community in thinking-in-public about a shared sustainable future. It illustrates in such a dynamic way Art Jameel’s long-term approach to foregrounding the role of the arts in addressing the climate crisis – from international collaborations such as the World Weather Network, to major grants programmes that fund artists to produce thematic work and institutions to decarbonise, such as the current regional Anhar: Culture and Climate Platform, in collaboration with the British Council, and UAE-based Research and Practice Platform, with Dubai Culture, through to our role convening a regional network of arts leaders and ecologists, with whom we are collectively publishing a
bilingual sustainability charters and toolkits for the Middle East.”
