From a large warehouse to a creative space Malja Bahrain has had two years of creativity and collaboration and celebrated the same Saturday evening, the 28th of January. What was initially a supermarket Bahrain was indeed missing a place for creative collaboration. While the celebrations included an evening of all-encompassing creativity, including b-boying, art and music the key highlight of the evening was the launch of the Colab Project. The Collaboration Lab (CoLab) was for creative expression.
The project prompts seasonal exhibitions converging artists of different disciplines to translate each other’s work and collaborate under variable circumstances. The first edition of CoLab: Words are blind, was curated by Fatima AlSaad and Weaam Seprinck and featured a dive into writer and visual artist collaboration.
This was a blind collaboration that started with writers whose pieces were blindly shifted into the hands of a visual artist who created their own art based on the piece.
The artists and writers got to meet each other for the first time at the anniversary celebrations and the result was exactly was the project aimed to achieve; Words are Blind.
