For the last few years, Sharjah Foundation’s Community Programme has been committed to engaging and growing the local creative community.
It does so by offering various mapping exercises, research methodologies, focus groups, zine making workshops, scavenger hunts and culinary tours, the outcomes have been personal narratives of the neighbourhood.
These workshops and activities emphasise public participation, urban research and sustainability.
All these outcomes will culminate into a guide book made for the community and visitors by the community.
In collaboration with Gulf Photo Plus and MobiPixUAE, SAF organised a photo tour of SB12 where participants walked through Souk Al Arsa, SAF Art Spaces, Port Khalid and Calligraphy Square.
#SAFneighbourhoodwas a project which documented the narratives, gems and urban layers of the neighbourhood surrounding Sharjah Art Foundation.
SAF Urban Garden was a community outreach initiative which invited audiences to use the garden for social and educational events, planting and sharing produce.
This event began with a tour around the exhibitions of Sudanese artists Amir Nour, Kamala Ibrahim Ishag and The Khartoum School, followed by a night of Sudanese music and poetry at SAF Urban Garden.
