AtWork Manama Lab workshop leader
Ulafa’a is an art initiative that aims to create opportunities for people to express themselves and to strengthen relationships of respect and understanding among the different communities of Bahrain. The project is based on the belief that people can express themselves through a variety of artistic forms, and that these expressions can facilitate communication and the sharing of stories. Born from a group of young individuals with various backgrounds, the aim is not for artists to create art while they remain isolated in closed studio. Ulafa’a rather creates opportunities for artists to communicate with people directly and develop relationships, so that these artists can create works that speak to the community and even represent them in new images.
