re_use was created by Zahed in 2007 as an annual event for NGOs, companies, and youth to showcase their talents using eco-friendly means to create art and activities for the public.

In 2016, after five successful editions, re_use was re-imagined as a traveling, multi-arts program for sub-culture - responding to pressing issues in cities. Driven by emerging thoughts and ideas from around the world, the new program is constantly evolving to include interactive, inclusive and educational activities.

The inaugural, new re_use program was held over a weekend in the Spring of 2016 in Kuwait City and featured a diverse group of international and local artists to collaborate and present their works publicly. Thereafter, a satellite edition was held in the Spring of 2017 in Dubai.

re_use is now live in Kuwait (Jan. - Apr. 2019) and will make its London debut in April 2019.
