Jameel Arts Centre Youth Assembly to offer unprecedented opportunities

Young creative talent in the UAE is set to receive a boost with the launch of a pioneering Youth Assembly program from Art Jameel.

The Jameel Arts Centre Youth Assembly features nine artists aged 18-25  with a breadth of experience and specialties: Shaikha Al Ketbi (visual artist), Salwa Al Khudairi (architect), Abdulghanni Al Nahawi (designer/sculptor), Hassan Adebayo Bello (social entrepreneur), Sara Bin Safwan (assistant curator/social entrepreneur), Jenan Ismail (graphic designer), Arpana Murugappan (multimedia designer/coder), Dina Tawil (digital designer/illustrator), and Ray Yafi (graphic designer).

Together they will act as ambassadors for the Jameel Arts Centre, organize youth-related events, encourage youth participation, and establish relationships with other arts organizations, institutions and businesses. They will also receive mentoring, support and resources as they look to produce a series of public events and research projects between November 2018 and April 2019.

The Youth Assembly program is designed to offer young cultural leaders first-hand insights into the workings of an arts institution. It will also provide exposure to local, regional and international arts opportunities, as well as offer career development through round-table and one-on-one events with artists and expert practitioners.
