TLH Conversations

Past Events

Butheina Kazim

Our conversation with Butheina Kazim explored her journey with Cinema Akil which evolved from a nomadic existence as a moving cinema, to a permanent home in Alserkal Avenue as Dubai’s first independent art house cinema.

Nada Debs

Coinciding with Dubai Design Week, our discussion with Lebanese designer Nada Debs focused on the exploration of multiple design forms over the course of her successful career, what hybridity means to her in light of her journey from Japan back to Lebanon and the region, and how her products weave multiple connections between food and design, a centerpiece of our own philosophy at The Lighthouse.

Joey Ghazal

As part of our final TLH Conversations session of 2018, we invited Joey Ghazal, Founder of The Maine (Oyster Bar & Grill) and Barbary, to an hour-long conversation discussing what it means to have “an eye”; how restaurateurs make particular design choices so that their spaces flow; what it takes to build a grassroots, local F&B brand in the UAE, and more.

Nadine Kanso

What inspired Bil Arabi, Nadine Kanso’s now iconic jewellery line that has become synonymous with cool and edgy design aesthetics? What motivated her to push the envelope and start her own business 12 years ago only to emerge as one of the most creative female entrepreneurs in the Middle East? Our discussion with Nadine Kanso marked the first TLH Conversation session of the year 2019.

Christine Macel

Centre Pompidou Chief Curator Christine Macel was our guest for March’s TLH Conversations. Just in time for #ArtWeekDubai, the conversation with Hashem Montasser and Macel also explored the contributions of Middle East artists to the global contemporary art scene, and their influence on Macel and her curatorial practice.
