Ramadan at the Jameel

This Ramadan, in collaboration with #MyDubai, Jameel Arts Centre presented a series of entertaining and educational Ramadan events for all, including Ramadan Nights running from 9:00 pm to midnight on select Mondays and Fridays.

This Friday, the series ends with the Ramadan Souk as the ultimate destination to enjoy the evening breeze under the stars and get your shopping done while supporting local UAE businesses. The Souk features everything from locally-made, vintage and preloved apparel to sustainable lifestyle essentials and unique, inspired gifts. Visitors can grab a treat and a chai from UAE’s own homegrown eateries, Karak Inc Eatery, The Ice Cream ShopFlour Girl and Meet the Locals, or explore the museum’s gardens and exhibitions with a free guided tour. Free drop-in activities includes woodworking, optical art, origami and illustration, while more advanced workshops embrace the festive season with ceramics, sustainable giftwrapping and DIY Henna.

The month began on Friday April 16 with two wellness-oriented and exhibition-inspired Breathing & Sound Healing Sessions led by Sevine Samadhi and Shereen Al Mulla. This was then followed by a Suhourscaping workshop led by Anoud Al Zaben and inspired by Sunoj D and Namrata Neog’s Desert is a Forest on Monday April 19.

Friday April 23 was fun for all ages with homegrown eateries, free guided tours and drop-in activities that ranged from stargazing with Dubai Astronomy Group, crafting lanterns, designing a lunar calendar and a children’s storytime, to workshops where participants upcycled boxes into guitars and made eco-friendly bespoke dolls.

Arabic Literary Night with Emirati novelist, poet and storyteller Sultan Al Ameemi, co-programmed with the Emirates Literature Foundation and took place on Monday April 26.

Ramadan Nights are free and open to all. Book your two-hour visit to Jameel Arts Centre here and check in at the Welcome Desk upon arrival. Limited-capacity workshops require additional registration.
