The Can't-Miss Performance

The heart surgeon turned comedy sensation, Bassem Youssef, is bringing his unparalleled wit and humor to Abu Dhabi this Saturday. The Egyptian powerhouse stole our hearts after masterfully schooling Piers Morgan on Palestine, and becoming 'most-watched' guest on Uncensored. Don’t miss the chance to see him live, speaking truth to power with a smile on his face. 


The Movie Night

Immerse yourself in the poignant world of Palestinian cinema this week as Alserkal Avenue's November Art Week comes to a close. In response to Art Week and the On This Land exhibition, Reel Palestine and Cinema Akil are hosting one more free public screening this weekend in the Alserkal courtyard. This Saturday, catch the closing film of their outdoor yard screening series, Jumana Manna's Foragers. The mockumentary is a thought-provoking exploration of colonial apartheid, resource, and land exploitation, and is sure to give you the warm and fuzzies, and a much-needed laugh.


The Day of Purpose and Positivity

Embrace sustainability in style at Jameel Arts Centre's annual 'Down to Earth' event this Saturday. From the Green Bazaar and farmer's market, treasure troves of vintage and thrifted finds, live performances and thought-provoking talks, and mouth-watering food, there’s no shortage of ways to engage, learn, and indulge. What makes this day even more special is the heartfelt commitment to Palestine, with numerous activations dedicated to raising awareness and support. 


The Need for Speed

The highlight event that needs no introduction: it's Race Week at Yas Marina. All eyes are on Abu Dhabi this weekend, and this year's lineup promises an unparalleled blend of global cuisines, world-class entertainment, and immersive experiences, ensuring guests ‘Go all out’ in style and excitement. With everything from exclusive dining and artistic showcases to captivating performances and the mesmerizing Laser Show, Yas Marina is set to redefine the thrill and glamour of race weekends, on and off the track.
