Nuqat – Executing Culture Shock

Last month, I attended the three-day Nuqat conference about Executing Culture Shock. I really enjoyed my time there. The lectures made me look at art and design very differently. I realized how hard it is to make such beautiful things. Of course things get harder when culture gets involved because people don’t always accept art as a form of expression. Many times, art is censored because the culture wouldn’t accept it. It traces back to traditions and what the current norms are.

One of the lecturers, Alanoud Al Sharekh, talked about censorship and the forbidden in our region when it comes to art and media. Her speech was one of the best. Thank God for technology because all of the lectures are available on Nuqat’s YouTube Channel.

Here’s Al Sharekh’s speech (skip the first 3 min to immediately start with the speech)

Adobe CS6

I have been searching for a long time for a place that sells certain Adobe programs for Mac. I wanted the latest version of Photoshop, Indesign and Illustrator (the version is called CS6). I went to iCity and Digits, but they only had older versions. I was so frustrated and I asked around, but nobody knew a place! So, I called up the computer guy my family usually deals with and asked him if he had them. At first, he told me he didn’t, but that he will try to download them and see if it works on my mac. It took him nearly a week to get the programs, but when he finally did I was relieved. He uploaded the programs to my mac in half an hour. The search has ended. If anyone is facing difficulties with getting CS6 in Kuwait, then don’t hesitate to contact me and I’ll be glad to give you the details of the computer guy.
