Here's how you can be part of a crowdsourced virtual exhibit in Qatar

If you're a budding artist or just have an inclination towards creativity and beautiful things, here's your chance to be part of a virtual exhibition in Qatar.

The National Museum of Qatar (NMoQ) has announced the launch of four crowdsourced virtual exhibitions and invited its digital audience to contribute toward developing the content of each.

The online exhibitions, which will eventually be posted on the NMoQ’s website, will feature themes that are explored in the NMoQ’s permanent installation, including Qatar’s Culinary Journey and Habitat & Shelters.

The exhibitions provide a platform for sharing creative responses amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Qatar’s Culinary Journey

This virtual exhibition will highlight traditional and personal interpretations of Qatari food.

You can submit two to three photographs of traditional Qatari cuisine – from karak to gahwa to madrooba, harees and other dishes – as well as a short statement explaining how you learned to make this dish.

Habitats & Shelters

Inspired by the National Museum’s Qatar Natural Environment and Life in Al Barr (Desert) permanent galleries, this virtual exhibition will explore how humans and Qatar’s wildlife take shelter in times of uncertainty to survive.

You can share photographs, sketches or paintings of retreats you have created within your homes in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Submissions can include drawings, painting, sculptures, photography and video. This exhibition targets ages six through 18 and will be celebrated during children’s month in November.

If you're interested in contributing to these crowdsourced exhibitions, share your photographs, illustrations, and/or sketches, as well as a 100-word text responding to the specified exhibition to
