Urban Culture Weekend – Feb 2017


On the weekend of February 23-25, 2017, Malja Bahrain hosted its first Urban Culture Weekend! After the success of Red Bull Bahrain’s very first Urban Culture Week, we’ve condensed it to weekends robust with urban culture to spread throughout the year.

The first event witnessed a 3-day graffiti workshop with Huvil, a 2-day B-Boy Clinic with Dusty Dust, a Street Photography workshop with Khalid AlJabri, a movie night, and a big finisher with the first round of Malja’s B-Boy of the Year Cypher!
