Discover the best of Jeddah!

Glimpses from the edge

We went to the Edge of Arabia Jeddah, and bring you some glimpses back. Keep checking our tag ‘Arts and Cultures’ this month for teasers, updates and perspectives on Edge of Arabia Jeddah. In this post, works by two artists, Ahmed Angawi and Manal Al Dowayan. 


The streets are talking, are you listening? Above: Ahmed Angawai’s Street Pulse Project, an ongoing participatory work that aims to glean the undercurrent  of life in the streets of the Arab world. This project is called Voices of Jeddah.



What’s in a name? More than you’d guess. Different perspectives of Manal AlDowayan’s ‘My Name’, another project rich with the voices and stories of hundreds of Saudi women. Below: Works from the series ‘I am’ by Manal AlDowayan.
