The Media Majlis at Northwestern University in Qatar

About the media majlis

The first museum in the Arab world dedicated to the content of media, journalism, and communication.

The Media Majlis at Northwestern University in Qatar explores and examines media, journalism, and communication—pasts, presents, and futures—through global, regional, and local/Qatar lenses.

This new type of museum is an active space, bringing people together to engage with exhibitions and programs challenging standard narratives, where stories and ideas are discussed with audiences. The Media Majlis exhibitions aim to introduce and facilitate exploration of topics and stories, empowering audiences with a greater understanding and ability to interrogate the media and journalism surrounding them.

Featuring extensive digital capacity exhibitions encourage visitor participation, comment, and engagement with rich stories, lesser heard voices, and the people who have and are creating our media world in the region and globally.
