Sharjah Heritage Area Photowalk
Workshop for Children and Families
Date: Saturday, 4 December 2021
Timings: 11:00 am–1:00 pm
Location: Al Mureijah Square
Languages: Arabic and English
Drawing upon personal and collective memory, Hrair Sarkissian’s artworks navigate stories that official records and sources cannot tell. Inspired by the artist’s approach, participants will go on a walk in Sharjah’s Heritage Area, a restored neighbourhood where a number of traditional Emirati houses have been preserved and turned into museums. Throughout the photowalk, they will be encouraged to interact with the local residents and shopkeepers in Souk Al Arsa to find stories they can use to create a narrative for their photographs.
Registration for this workshop has closed.
This event is free and open to the public. All materials are provided by Sharjah Art Foundation.
