Youth Culture brought to Life in the month of Literature
al-Zine, a custom-designed workshop

In line with the Ministry of Culture's emphasis on youth engagement and the fostering of multi-disciplinary learning opportunities, a four-session al-Zine workshop will be held in the Bahrain National Museum between 18th and 28th July.

Led by two brilliant young artists, Anna Leanda Thackray and Leon D, the workshop allows students to examine the art of publishing in order to bring their creative output to a wider audience than previously possible. Students will be enabled to develop their singular Zines and will be encouraged to sell them in select outlets across the island. They will also publish their work online in order to reach the widest audience envisaged.

Leon D is a Bahraini self-taught artist who experiments with pop and surreal art. Anna Leanda Thackray has a degree in Fine Art from Southampton University and moved to Bahrain in 2008. Together they will bring the class alive for young adults who are interested in making their own paper publications and sharing their thoughts with readers.

To sign up for this class interested participants must register with their name, age and phone number by sending an email to
