Qatar America Institute for Culture’s (QAIC) annual IMPART SUMMIT: Congress for Creatives is a platform to celebrate the impact of QAIC’s art and cultural programs in both our local and international communities. The summit brings together artists, filmmakers, creatives, and artistic institutions and strives to elicit inclusion through expression and increase intercultural awareness to promote and connect innovators.
This year’s summit will celebrate the culmination of QAIC’s yearlong focus on sustainability in the arts and will feature expert panels and film screenings with current QAIC partners addressing sustainability in olfactory and culinary arts and film. The program will also include a panel featuring our 2021 IMPART artist grant winners, community-based art-making, interactive cultural experiences, and art exhibitions.
Confirmed partners to date include:
the Doha Film Institute, Institute for Art and Olfaction, Mokha Institute, and IMPART 2021 artist grantees.
