Warehouse421 is a creative center located in Mina Zayed, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, and is dedicated to emerging creative practitioners and those who want to access art and harness it as an agent for inquiry, education, and growth.
Inaugurated in 2015, it grew into a space that nurtures our own world-class talent, where emerging creative practitioners can develop as curators, artists, designers, writers, musicians or performers across disciplines, while exploring their place in their communities and unpacking the potential of public space as a vehicle for progress.
Warehouse421 sees the creative process as a lens for observation, questioning, critique, and interpreting life. It is a practice of risk-taking, sharing, thinking, reflecting, dialogue, and understanding. Putting education at the forefront of culture, it champions the acquisition of knowledge and aims to support the next generation of deep thinkers, researchers, and practitioners who are engaged with the country and the region.
