101 Talks

101 Talks

101 Talks is a series of conversations with members of the UAE creative community, organised every month by Alserkal Programming. With a focus on a wide range of subjects which includes art, design and more.

Each month, 101 Talks will invite a different member of the UAE’s community to offer unique insight into the world that creatives inhabit. 

Presented in a simple moderated style, each session will allow you to interact and engage with the speakers, giving you the chance to have your questions answered by those most qualified to do so.
