Randa Hadi

Randa Hadi is a Kuwaiti designer, researcher, educator, and architect by educational training. Her work explores ways to (re)think the archives as a space to heal, dream, and imagine a better future and interweaving them with themes relating to Arab identity, belonging, collective memories and making, and cultural visual language through design. She currently works at Polymode as a Senior Designer where her work focuses on weaving narratives of social justice, resistance, unearthing voices, and imagining design experiences through poetic research, which asks us to look at the multiplicity and plurality of our current, past, and present realities.

As an educator, she focuses on acts of inclusion, collaboration, and ways to (re)write design education both in the classroom and as an educator for the BIPOC Design History courses.

Late last year, I recieved the Pro Helvetia On the Road Again grant with Mayar El Bakry, Sherine Salla, Nada Ezzeldin, Sohaila Khaled, and Noureldin Ahmed.
