Two young Saudi women host a design event that is pushing boundaries of art and tradition.
Design, the arts and females leading innovation in the cultural field are not things you might associate with Saudi Arabia.
Enter young entrepreneur Basma Bouzo and interior designer Wadha Rashed.
Basma is the co-founder of Saudi Design Week, an event that seeks to foster local talent and create opportunities for designers. She has brought in Wadha to manage the installation of the event.
But running the fair is fraught with challenges in a kingdom steeped in religious patriarchal traditions.
Witness follows the two young friends as they put on Saudi Design Week and explore how they’re opening up the reclusive kingdom through this unexpected field.
