Warehouse 421’s 2019 programme started a couple of weeks ago when Mohamed Somji led a photography workshop around Mina Zayed. If you’re annoyed at having missed out on that, then the good news is it was just the beginning of stellar line-up of new offerings this month.

On January 23 there’s a double-bill of short Palestinian films – May Odeh and Riham Al Ghazali’s drama Gaza By Her, followed by Julia Bacha’s affecting documentary Naila And The Uprising. Both screenings will be free.



If you’re looking to get your young ones into reading, then on January 26 a new series, Khayal: Early Starters, will be taking place on the final Saturday of every month from now on. These sessions will feature dynamic readings and activities designed to explore the themes of each chosen book. The first section will focus on local authors and titles before expanding to more globally successful books in later classes.

Lastly, you may be old enough to draw deep from the reservoir of memory and recall that the abbreviation for magazine was historically mag.

This is apparently no longer the case – now, to be down with the kids you should refer to them as ’zines. Whatever you want to call them, 8 Fold Zine will arrive on 29 January will the aim of repurposing old mags and introducing adolescents to the world of publishing, eventually producing their own title, focusing on a specific topic. Perhaps easier done than said, this will be aimed at those keen on a themed teen ’zine.
