Fikra x PaTI

            Fikra and Paju Typography Institute (PaTI) in partnership with the Ministry of Culture and Youth in the United Arab Emirates, the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism and KOFICE in the Republic of Korea launched the first edition of Starters in July 2020, a cultural exchange through design and research, under the theme of Cultural Exchange Through Design and Food. 

            Starters is an online educational experiment that consisted of a series of workshops, critiques, and mentorship. 12 students from the UAE and Korea set out to investigate each other’s culture through design-led research. The students, selected to participate in the international dialogue, are exposed to their fellows' culture, gastronomic heritage and national traditions and personal stories.

            Fikra and PaTI expanded their collaboration with a second edition in 2021 under the title of Starters 2.0: Traveling through Food. The work displayed on this website is the result of this collaboration.
