Join us on the opening night of Enrichment in the Spring for a special unveiling of the exhibition of photography created by our community. A cocktail reception will accompany this unveiling.
In the spirit of this year’s Enrichment in the Spring theme of Exploring Innovation, each picture is a personal and creative response to the following elements:
Earth –the hard, solid objects of the earth.
Water –the fluid, flowing, formless things in the world
Fire –the energetic, forceful, moving things in the world
Air –things that grow, expand, and enjoy freedom of movement
Prizes will be awarded for each of the four elements and one overall winners prize that cannot be one of the selected four.
An award ceremony will be held at the end of the 'Innovation Ecosystems for a Creative Economy' keynote lecture on Tuesday, April 26 from 5:30 - 7:00 p.m. at the Auditorium, Building 20.
This exhibition will run from Friday, April 22 until Saturday, April 30.
A cocktail reception will be served from 6:00 pm.
This exhibition is brought to you by the Office of Enrichment Programs in collaboration with the KAUST Photography SDG.

Professor Mark Tester is a scientist with much energy who is passionate about research and discovery, with a commitment to lifelong learning. He is committed to education and assisting and supporting others in fulfilling their potential. He is focused on high quality science that contributes broadly to both increasing intellectual knowledge of plant function and to increasing the sustainability of the planet.
He has a high level of professional integrity and intellectual rigour, and the quality of his science is reflected in both the quality of his publications and the recognition of these by others. He leads a research program on salinity tolerance in plants at KAUST, as well as in floriculture in his private company, Bioconst.
Professor Tester operates in a broad, cross-disciplinary manner, his science spanning cell biology, whole plant physiology and genetics. He has the capacity to attract significant funding and to implement ideas, such as shown in his building of The Plant Accelerator, from inception to completion, co-ordinating a wide range of expertise from engineers and architects to plant scientists and financial managers.
He has strong financial and administrative management skills, overseeing large projects with significant budgets and many staff. His commercial acumen is clear from his establishment of private companies and successful interactions with multinational companies such as Monsanto, Syngenta, Bayer and Pioneer-DuPont. He was, until recently, a Director of Australia’s largest wheat breeding company, Australian Grains Technologies.
