This curated programme of creative activities and events held every second Wednesday evening at the Warehouse421, invites the public to participate in a diverse selection of arts activities including workshops, film screenings, panel discussions and exhibitions.
‘Wednesdays at the Warehouse’ brings together a curated programme of events and activities presented in collaboration with alumni from the Salama bint Hamdan Al Nahyan Emerging Artists Fellowship (SEAF) who will lead three workshops; independent cinema platform Cinema Akil who will screen a program of contemporary Arab short and feature films and Lest We Forget who will lead selected workshops and panel discussions.
The launch of Warehouse421 in November 2015 saw 10,000 visitors from the UAE and the region attending the opening which introduced aspects of the programme presented through different platforms of expression.
Warehouse421 is a new venue for arts and culture located in the historic Mina Zayed district of Abu Dhabi that has been converted from two of the port’s former industrial warehouses. The mission of Warehouse421 is to celebrate art and culture, design and creativity, performance and music, from artists and designers based here in the UAE and from around the world, and to let people experience these disciplines in a unique and original space. The conversion of Warehouse421 has been overseen by the Salama bint Hamdan Al Nahyan Foundation as part of its mission to support the growth of the arts and cultural sector of the UAE.
