Art exhibition, craft workshops and leisurely get-togethers with ‘Ramadan Nights at RISE – Dubai Creek Harbour’

The ‘Ramadan Nights at RISE – Dubai Creek Harbour’ has evolved as one of the city’s sought-after Ramadan destinations defined by its unique setting and ambience.

Savour Iftar and Sohour with family and friends by the Dubai Creek, with spectacular views of the Dubai skyline with ‘Ramadan Nights at RISE – Dubai Creek Harbour.’

Throughout the Holy Month, artist Ali Shawwa’s work will be on display. Characterized by its interplay of layers, texture and reflective metallic elements, the Kuwaiti artist’s latest collection weaves the dualities between portraits and nature, where abstract flora and fauna are superimposed and become a prominent motif throughout the work.

At the venue, shop for the latest collections such as semi-precious jewellery, fashion accessories, clutches, hats, bags, belts, shawls, small gifts and even beachwear, by an array of exceptional designers.

Also, enjoy the original compositions by Syrian composer and Qanun player Khalil Ghadri, who fuses traditional and western melodies to provide a nostalgic yet daring experience.

On June 7, from 9pm to 11pm, join Alia Al Shamsi, an internationally published photojournalist, for a book reading session. Her photographs have been being exhibited around the world and won several awards including: EDAAD Scholarship 2007, British Council Cultural Leadership International 2010 and 2011 Emirates Woman Artist of the Year.
