The Proteges – Seminar at CBA


I wrote about The Proteges program about this time last year and what they do, and it seems they had a successful run with their 25 students. Its amazing the amount of talent there is in Kuwait and I’m hoping that they expand on this program. Currently they have seminar taking place in the College of Business Administration to give you a glimpse of what they do and to get an understanding of The Proteges. You should check it out today if you have a chance.

Get more familiar with The Proteges program, with a couple of inspiring mentors at College of Business Administration – Monday April 11th at 12:30PM in A2

The one thing I think we are lacking in Kuwait is architectural creativity and in this case our students are not given the chance to exercise these newly gained skills. I like seeing works of young architects because they may be free of the conventional bounds, and in this case the KASA exhibit in Avenues. I’m going to check it out when I have the chance next and I think every else should as well.
