These are the questions that the Covid-19 pandemic has prompted so many of us – especially in museums – to ask. Undoubtedly, we have been challenged and changed over the past year. Yet we know that at many points throughout history, hardship has resulted in great art movements, innovations, and inventions. Creativity can be a powerful path to resilience.
In late 2020, the curatorial team at the National Museum of Qatar invited young members of the community to document their perspectives and emotions during quarantine, and to share them in this very special presentation called NMoQ Creates Together. Here we see the results of children and young adults using art to explore the changes in their own lives and in the world around them.
Their imaginations inspire us to move forward through creativity and exploration, together.
