Here's what to do this weekend
Summer is in full effect and if you're wondering how to spend your days out of the scorching heat, we've got you covered...

although the country may have quietened down, there’s no shortage of culturally-enriching experiences to try out. Just before the Eid holidays take place, this weekend is hosting some cool new things for you and your loved ones to take part in. From a must-see exhibition for those with an artistic eye to finding your zen at a free yoga event, there’s plenty to do. Take a look here…

Where to go

This weekend, one Dubai-based artist will be showcasing her first ever solo exhibition. Titled The Simplicity of the Jungle, Sheeba Khan’s colourful works of expressionist paintings tell the story of Khan’s childhood memories spent in the jungles of Bhopal, India. With the use of vibrant shades and unusual textures, these art pieces are unique and a must-see. 

The Simplicity of the Jungle exhibition is located at The Summit Area in the Fairmont Hotel, Dubai, and will run until August 17, 2018. 

What to do

If you’re looking for a way to relax and unwind this weekend, why not try out a free yoga event? Set to take place at Le Meridien Dubai Hotel’s Great Ballroom, the event will first kick off with a motivational talk from industry professionals followed by an hour-long yoga class. The event will also promote holistic wellness whilst offering yogis some healthy snacks towards the end of their journey. 

The free yoga event will take place at Le Meridien Dubai Hotel, on August 11, 2018.  

What to see

Cinema Akil always hosts free movie events at its space and this weekend will showcase The Big Flip, an American documentary about four different families. It will highlight the work that wives and husbands do once they’re at home with the kids and over the course of 18 months, will see the roles of the wife and the husband switch. Grab your popcorn! 

The Big Flip will be screened at the A4 Space in Alserkal Avenue, Manarat Al Saadiyat, on August 11, 2018, at 7pm.
