Event Information

Open to


A collaboration between Mshereib Museums and students of the MA in Museum and Gallery practice at UCL Qatar, the exhibition: " we are the daughters of Qatar" will open to the public on 11th of April 2018 in Company House at Msheireb Museums.

This exhibition tells the stories of Qatari women whose lives were transformed as a result of the discovery of oil. Through the perspectives of grandmothers, mothers and daughters, we explore what has changed and what has remained the same in women's lives. At the heart of this exhibition are the personal encounters of three generations of Qatari women as we examine their memories and ideas concerning education, career, fashion, crafts and art. 

As part of exhibition educational program, a panel discussion is taking place in Georgetown Qatar University, Education city on Wednesday 4 April.
