This year’s Spring of Culture was extra special with colors and art. AlRiwaq art space did an amazing job organizing “I’m the other” art exhibit at Bohemia an abandoned building in the heart of Adliya. Bohemia is a four-story building which was stuffed with art projects and installations all the way to the rooftop. There wasn’t any empty corner unutilized!
In addition to I’m the other there were murals and installations spread all over Adliya’s Block 338. The most popular event in Alwan 338 was the opening of the Park which was previously an empty ground in the area. The park was decorated with recycled material and the space was used for film screenings and workshops in addition to usual hangouts specially since there was a library and a qahwa “coffee shop’ serving tea and Bahraini snacks :)
I just loved the park and I visited it frequently in the past month since the weather was just perfect! I also attended the calligraphy workshop with Nedhal Nooh an artist and photographer. I loved calligraphy and never imagined it was so tough!
Alwan338 lasted for a whole month and in my opinion it was a huge success. I hope to see Alwan come to life again soon inshallah :)
