Medea & Cumulus Future Partnership

Prospects for future cooperation are rising between the Middle East Design Educators Association (MEDEA) and the International Association of Universities and Colleges of Arts, Design and Media (CUMULUS). MEDEA president had fruitful discussion with CUMULUS Secretary General Eije Salmi about the future possibilities in strengthening the ties between CUMULUS and MEDEA.
MEDEA president acknowledged the need to adjust its mission and core values to reflect the rapid changes in design education in the Middle East. MEDEA is looking for partnership with International Association of Universities and Colleges of Arts, Design and Media (CUMULUS).

MEDEA thinks of this collaboration as an important factor in the way MEDEA delivers this strategy. MEDEA needs to independently play its part in promoting design education to key international stakeholders and decision makers.

MEDEA is the only regional association to serve design educators, design education and research in the Middle East and Cumulus is the only global association to serve art and design education and research. Both are a forum for partnership and transfer of knowledge and best practices.
