Lest We Forget is a major grassroots arts and heritage
initiative that aims to archive, preserve, and share
vernacular photographs and oral histories of the
UAE. First launched by a group of Emirati female
students at Sheikh Zayed University, the initiative’s
goal was to kick-start a national archival project that
would encourage Emiratis to share their family stories.
GSM Project was brought on board to help adapt the
project to the exhibition context. We designed and built
a highly interactive temporary exhibition for Lest We
Forget, which helped launch Warehouse421, a new arts
and culture destination located in the revitalized Al Mina
district of Abu Dhabi.
