Alserkal Avenue

Alserkal Avenue – the region’s foremost arts hub – was established in 2007 to encourage and support the regions burgeoning contemporary art scene. Our aim is to foster an organic and prolific creative community in the UAE. Situated in Dubai’s industrial quarter, the Avenue is a cluster of architect-designed warehouses. It is home to interspersed public spaces that bring together collaborators from diverse artistic disciplines; encouraging open dialogue, sharing of ideas and a collaborative work ethic that can see these creative ideas come to life. Initially a group of 20 warehouses, the addition of our 2015 expansion has welcomed several new galleries and creative businesses. Spread across 500,000 square feet, we house numerous galleries of international repute, dynamic art spaces, and homegrown cultural initiatives. These include not-for-profit artists’ studios, residency programmes, project spaces, concept stores, black box theatre, independent cinema, outdoor event facilities and community-led cultural initiatives, as well as unique food and beverage outlets. The vision for Alserkal Avenue has always been to build a home for creative industries. It maps a vital intersection for the confluences of art, culture and development. To this end, we are more than just a neighbourhood; we are an arts organisation with an active homegrown programme; we are the driving force that bring the community together to support and encourage a creative economy; we are a platform via which regional artists and art initiatives can reach a wider, international audience.
