Abu Dhabi: Umm Al Emarat Park will host Festival in the Park, a vibrant two-day outdoor cultural experience to be held on March 12–13, 2023, in collaboration with the Abu Dhabi Music and Arts Foundation (ADMAF). The festival will bring a dose of culture and joy to the community with a variety of family-friendly activities and performances, in addition to inclusive activities for People of Determination.
Visitors can join the Drumming Circle, where they can learn to play the drums through imitation with Dubai Drums, or get creative with the Graffiti Art Workshop, where they will be introduced to different styles of graffiti such as tags, throws, and pieces. Visitors can also enjoy the Sustainable Palm Eye Art Workshop with Ms. Azza Al Qubaisi, who seeks to engage the public with her art.
The festival further includes a street dance workshop by Dance It Forward, covering various street dance styles and choreographies. There is also an inclusive dance micro-workshop that will offer a safe and creative space for People of Determination to explore mindful movement and physical and emotional expression.
“We are thrilled to once again host Festival in the Park, which reflects our long-term partnership with ADMAF and our commitment to offering a platform for creative expression in a family-friendly environment.
