This year, the annual celebration of Ramadan Nights returns to Jameel Arts Centre with two fun-filled programming on two consecutive Saturdays (April 9 and 16, from 9 pm till midnight).
Programming includes workshops across ‘Creative Stations’ for both adults and children led by local art practitioners, board games, henna designs, storytime at Jameel Library and a ‘Reading Vigil’ paying ode to scholars, writers and artists who have left a mark on how we engage with the world.
Visitors of Ramadan Nights are able to enjoy a late night treat from one of the local vendors, offering Karak, fizzy drinks and freeflow cotton candy and popcorn, or can head over to the museum’s new farm-to-fork restaurant, Teible, and try the Ramadan-themed culinary concoctions.
Ramadan Nights are free and open to all, upon registration due to limited capacity. For more details, please refer to the schedule of programming for April 9 and April 16.
