Ayah Younis works with a group of high school students to introduce artworks from Sharjah Biennial 10. Students explore ideas, materials and processes and make their own artworks inspired by a visit to the Biennial.

Biennial for a Plot is an art workshop led by Ayah Younis for Ibn Seena High School. The students will explore different ways of looking at Sharjah Biennial 10 and will produce their own artworks inspired by their experience at the Biennial.

Ayah's approach is based on exploration as well as informal learning, an open approach that allows much of creative thinking and openness.
