Alserkal Avenue’s online platform is a one-stop shop for all things culture
Dubai’s arts and culture hub Alserkal Avenue has furthered its commitment to creating culturally meaningful spaces in which local talent can flourish by launching alserkal.online, an experimental digital platform led by the creative community, for the creative community.
alserkal.online aims to support diverse narratives and bring the community together through a shared love of art and culture, as well as serving as a platform for regional voices to share their opinions via thought-provoking content. Whether you’re interested in exploring the UAE’s first-ever cinemas, want to hear from the Middle East’s curators or simply wish to enjoy poetry from the region’s creative writers, alserkal.online has pieces everyone will enjoy.
The website will also be a space for digital art commissions to come to life in a way that not only captures the soul of Alserkal Avenue but stays true to its mission to elevate and support creative commentary. “A thriving cultural scene is the backbone of integrated societies, engendering a sense of belonging and prosperity,” says Abdelmonem Bin Eisa Alserkal, founder of Alserkal Avenue. Of course, alserkal.online will be the go-to information hub for visitors to stay in the loop with cultural events; you’ll never miss an exhibition again.
As well as launching a brand-new platform, Alserkal Avenue has also shared a sustainability plan in which it outlines its mission to offset carbon emissions via solar panel installation; carry out waste management practices; implement a tree-planting initiative; discontinue the usage of single-use plastics; and promote recycling.
