- Al Serkal Summer Programme: Alserkal Programming presents the Avenue’s third annual Summer Programme: Sensing Memory.

A mere smell or sound—brewing coffee, or waves breaking on the shore—can take us back in time. Until 15 September, Sensing Memory will draw from the UAE’s creative community and beyond to explore the connection between the senses and our personal and collective memories. The programme features a series of free events that are open to the public, including: a workshop exploring perfume’s potential to trigger memory of loved ones, tai chi lessons to tune participants into their bodies and senses, a lecture and workshop exploring traditional building materials from the UAE, and much more.
