Keynote guests include leading Qatari architect Ibrahim M Jaidah and artist Lawrence Abu Hamdan, with performances from Radio AlHara, a Palestinian online radio station, and catering by Qatari food entrepreneur Mjay Al Thani.

There will also be two exhibitions by Studio Safar showcasing the design and branding journey for Al Journal and a unique poster display from YaHala Studio. (QNA)
