This year’s educational program kicks off with an exciting bucket drumming workshop by the Groove Onkels street theatre act. This workshop is guaranteed to be fun for the whole family!

DAFA Puppet Theater offers a rare opportunity for children to play, learn and explore ways in expressing their thoughts through the creative puppeting technique. The workshop will be held in Salman Cultural Centre and will be conducted in Arabic.

Within the educational program, children’s awareness workshops will be held which consists of showing them important concepts related to the heritage of the Kingdom of Bahrain such as the “How to Make Pearl Jewellery?” workshop. It will include a story-telling of the story of the Pearling Path and how it extends at an open distance of more than 3 kilometres in Muharraq.

In addition, a workshop specializing in culinary arts titled “My Dish, My Gift” coincides prior to the celebration of the launch of the second edition of the “Food is Culture” book.

Furthermore, within these celebrations which fall under the Bahrain Authority for Culture and Antiquities’ slogan for the year of 2017, “Our Year of Archaeology”, the children’s workshop titled “Enkiru’s Journey Through the Ages”, encourages children in the spirit of belonging, while providing them with historical information about the civilization of the land we live in. “Rug Making” workshop will teach children about the carpet industry, whereas “The Art of Silversmithing” workshop attempts to revive and bring back the traditional crafts.
