Qatar Public Art Strategy

Contemporary Art Society were appointed by AECOM and Ashghal, Qatar to develop a national public art strategy to guide the delivery of public art within current and future public realm developments

The strategy addresses Qatar’s priority to preserve its culture and identity, whilst creating a framework for a nationally significant public art programme, developed through creative responses to Qatar’s physical, social and historical context. Providing opportunities for a dynamic range of cultural experiences and encounters within public space, the strategy sees the public realm as a platform for culture in its widest sense.

Over time the public realm will be seen as host to a growing collection of public art programming that is relevant to the Qatari experience and that reflects the best of its culture, landscape and heritage both to itself and to the world.
