WORKSHOP #2: CARE PACKAGES

In collaboration with the Sharjah Art Foundation, hosted by Dubai Design District, participants curated their own care packages that included handmade pins (from clay) and repurposed photographs to create original one-of-a-kind postcards. 

WORKSHOP #1: THE EVERYDAY URBAN ZINE WORKSHOP

We can't think of a better way to start our year. In collaboration with SAF, we held a zine making workshop. We walked around #SAFneighbourhood, explored, observed and documented our surroundings in several methods that included but weren't limited to photography and illustrations.  

Below are some photographs taken throughout the workshop. 

After exploring the SAF neighbourhood, we regrouped in SAF's magical urban garden and started creating zines.  

We'd like to thank Sharjah Art Foundation for this opportunity, and personally thank Hessa Ajmani for creating this excellent community programme, that encourages humans to explore and (sometimes, experimentally) document surroundings. A huge thank you to everyone who participated, seeing things through your lens was incredibly overwhelming.

Feel free to check out the brilliant creations of our participants.
