Urban Culture Week 2015


After a successful debut in 2014 at Anamil Gallery, Urban Culture Week came back for its second edition as Malja’s biggest event of the year. April 23, 2015 to April 30th, 2015 saw a week-long program chockfull of hip-hop, R&B, breaking, photography, graffiti, and inspiration all around. We saw local and regional artists come together and inject their energy into the space, from DJ Outlaw and Flipperachi to B-Boy Frankie and Tyrone! Check out the full line-up of visiting artists here.

The inspiration Urban Culture Week was of course a lead up to the Red Bull BC One Bahrain Cypher!
