Poets and musicians celebrate the UAE’s cultural diversity and explore their heritages.

Join us in a celebration of UAE National Day and the culmination of the Year of Zayed. The Arts Center’s 4th annual multiple-artist celebration of heritage draws from the diverse communities of the UAE to share original poetry, prose, and song, hosted by award winning Emirati spoken word poet and Arts Center artist in residence Afra Atiq.

The lineup of performers is selected through a collaborative process curated by: Shamma al Bastaki, Mohamed AlHashimi, Bill Bragin, Zari Jafri, Dorian Paul Rogers, and Deborah Lindsay Williams.

The final lineup of artists will be published several weeks prior to the event.
