The Victoria and Albert Museum in London is known to be the worlds leading museum of art and design and it aims to cultivate people’s love for the arts by offering different events every last Friday of the month. In their upcoming Friday Late on November 30,the V&A is opening up a new perspective of fashion and arts from the Middle East. The event will include music, installations, workshops, and screenings related to fashion and arts from artists coming from Morocco, Sharjah, Iran, Syrian, and Yemen.

The event will start with enticing sets of Middle Eastern music, that include Moroccan mix sounds curated by Younes Baba Ali and Anna Raimondo, contemporary dance, and live recording and music performances. Participants can get crafty with a workshop offered by Aya Haidar who reworks fabric samples using handmade craft, then relish three 30 minute story-telling circles from the Arab world.

There will also be a screening of the widely popular ‘Top Goon’ satirical puppet show by a collective of Syrian artists. The Friday Late will end with a tour of the exhibition ‘Light from the Middle East: New Photography’.

Admission is free and places are designated on a first come, first served basis. All events take place in the Victoria and Albert Museum November 30 from 6:30-10:00 pm.
