Urban Culture Weekend – May 2017


On the weekend of May 18-20, 2017, Malja Bahrain hosted its second 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.

This second event witnessed a 3-day graffiti workshop with Huvil, a beginner’s AfroDance workshop with 3wash, a Beatboxing workshop with Chico, a Street Photography Walk in Manama Souq with Khalid AlJabri, an urban culture movie night, and a big finisher with the fourth round of Malja’s B-Boy of the Year Cypher!
