FALL PROGRAM

This fall, Warehouse421 is taking you back to your senses with a season full of programs for your eyes, ears and much more! Sink into your body as we bring back our outdoor film program with Cinema Akil, close your eyes as our incense workshop entices your nose, focus on your fingertips as our calligraphy course guides your penmanship, listen in on one of our monthly Khayal story-time sessions, and don’t forget to support your creative community by visiting our CLU market! Whatever you’re looking for this fall, we have a taste, a whiff, or a touch of it here at Warehouse421!

 

The season will inaugurate our newly renovated spaces with two exhibitions: So Different, So Appealing curated by Murtaza Vali; and As We Gaze Upon Her curated by Banat Collective.

Workshops

Gulf Photo Plus Winter Camp: Engaging with Photography

Gulf Photo Plus Winter Camp: Engaging with Photography

The workshops focus on both photography as a practice and as a medium, teaching students the endless possibilities that come with photography.

 

Participants can expect to learn about photography through practical hands-on sessions interlaced with photography history centered around the MENA region. At the end of the course, students should have both the technical skills acquired in class and the beginnings of a portfolio if they choose to pursue a creative field. Students will also leave with more knowledge on photography movements within the MENA region.
