BY DANIEL DUFORD
@ VOL 18

He explains the process of curating a show featuring contemporary Cuban artists.

Equality Through Unity
BY HAMID SHAHI
@ VOL 14
ON MAR 06, 2018
After experiencing meeting, interviewing, collaborating, and working with some inspiring individuals in Japan, Hamid Shahi decided to reach out to his friends to initiate a global collaborative community with other amazing creative people who are interested in joining together and contributing to projects in pursuit of a higher purpose. At Unify Design Art, we believe everyone is creative and we think of designers and artists as people who exhibit the attitude, approach and abilities of forward thinking. We believe that creators around the globe can support and inspire each other to make positive change in their local communities. For us it’s not a question of thinking or doing, but what to think about and how to do it through unified systems and strategies.
