theOtherDada participated in the Disrupt!Design! ideathon workshop and competition.
10 groups were selected to participate in this workshop focusing on an idea that would DISRUPT the status quo in a way to positively influence and empower communities living in Lebanon. The ideas could address different themes such as local production, learning methods, environmental systems, social divides etc.
The aim of the 3-day workshop was to help different participants develop their initial concepts to become mature promising start-ups with the help of different mentors such as Paul Hughes, Richard van der Laken, Lilian Abouzeki, Stephanie Akkaoui Hughes.
theOtherDada, along with collaborators Made For Brands and Tamas, presented its strategic vision to bring Beirut River back to life, explaining the overall idea of the project and focus on pilot interventions located in the urban area of the River adjacent to Bourj Hammoud, Badawi neighborhoods , and the Ministry of Energy and Water.
The workshop helped us in further defining the project’s purpose, problematic, the means of implementation and our motivation behind the project.
At the end of the intense 72 hours, 4 winners were selected and Beirut River was one of them!
