Jaddaf Aloud Online is a new virtual programme launched to celebrate homegrown creative talent and provide opportunities for local audiences to engage and support through a series of activations. From the 19th of April, Jameel Arts Centre will host a series of new, interactive, artist-led workshops for all ages, music performances, a directory featuring local artisans, and a ‘guided tour’ of diverse Dubai-based eateries that can fulfil home deliveries.
For Jaddaf Aloud Online, Jameel Arts Centre has commissioned UAE-based artists to design and lead interactive projects for kids, teens and adults, using materials readily available at home. Sessions – many led by practitioners who regularly collaborate with Art Jameel — include crafts, art projects and mindfulness exercises. Workshops are led by Gulf Photo Plus, Eman AlHashemi, KAVE-The Story of Things, Asma Khoory, Natalya Konforti, Faissal El-Malak, Sara Masinaei, Rania Naccour, Jameel Assemblymember Daniel Rey, Marwan Shakarchi, Malda Smadi and Nahla Al Tabbaa.
Partnering with Analog Room, Dubai’s landmark electronic and live music venue, Jaddaf Aloud Online brings you a series of International experimental short films on Wednesday, April 22 at 8 pm (UAE time). The films are curated in collaboration with Vidéoformes, an international association that organises an annual digital arts festival in France.
Jaddaf Aloud Online is a virtual iteration of Jameel Arts Centre’s popular annual festival, Jaddaf Aloud!, which brings together the community in a celebration of homegrown creative talent.
