If you're keen to have your music heard or your artwork seen, you may be interesting a new initiative being launched by TCA Abu Dhabi.

Abu Dhabi Unplugged aims to allow young people to showcase their talent, creativity, skills and abilities in various public spaces throughout the capital.

The first event will take place at Yas Mall on Friday, July 21, from 5pm until 10pm. Members of the public are encouraged to attend the free shows.

Award-winning Emirati animation director Ahmed Fikree will be involved in the first session - he will have three of his animated films shown.

The UAE-based Dubomedy's Improv Troupe will also be showcased. The evening will start with a stand-up comedy performance and finish with a screening of Fikree's Girl and It.

TCA Abu Dhabi is showing their support for the local arts scene by providing outlets for people to showcase their talent both locally and internationally with hopes of inspiring a new generation of artists.

"Part of the culture sector’s role at TCA Abu Dhabi is to encourage and embrace local talent," says Sumayya Al Suwaidi, Community Events Manager at TCA Abu Dhab. "Abu Dhabi Unplugged has been produced to highlight the performances of contemporary art and culture such as music animation and performance arts.

“These forms of arts are a vital component of our contemporary culture. They present an interactive platform created to connect us as a community and help us encourage the stars of the future to recreate their own renditions that will ultimately contribute to today’s contemporary culture."
