Children aged 7-10 years in this interactive workshop will create their own wall-mounted light installations by bending and shaping glow sticks into luminescent phrases using Phoenician letter forms.

This workshop is inspired by Sarah Alagroobi’s original work, “The Sun Never Sets On The Empire”, which is featured in the exhibition, Nomadic Traces: Journeys of Arabian Scripts, currently on show at Warehouse421.

Nomadic Traces: Journeys of Arabian Scripts, curated by Dr Huda Smitshuijzen AbiFarès, continues at Warehouse421 this month. The exhibition explores the origins of six of the most influential alphabets in the history of the Middle East, and features new commissioned works by artists and designers from the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon and Palestine.

We are also excited to be hosting Al Rabi’a, an experimental, process-led space by the visual artist, Shaikha Al Ketbi, running until 2 June. Featuring static and moving paintings depicting scenes from the artist’s dreams, juxtaposed with fabricated recollections, Al Ketbi will further activate the space throughout May in collaboration with other members of the Warehouse421 creative community. 

This month’s program also includes the completion of short courses on documentary film and theatre acting, as well as workshops on henna art, drawing and painting, and graphic design, as part of our Ramadan program.

The “Khayal” series in collaboration with Early Starters, which brings children’s books to life through readings and activities, also continues in May with an inspirational session on the power of imagination and the magic of ideas.

As always, Warehouse421 is proud to be working with a range of local and international partners including Cinema Akil, Early Starters and Khatt Foundation, among others, on its public programs and events.
