Al Maeishah (the living, in Arabic) is an egalitarian learning environment interrogating Hospitality and Communal Learning as radical political acts, through mobility and neighbouring. Al Maeishah aims to connect with a meshwork of intersected life trajectories beyond borders, exploring the limitations and possibilities of the contemporary Nation-States. It is articulated in form of gatherings around language, walks and design sessions. A de-tour from the preconceived by re-making Shabaka (bond, in Arabic).
