Warehouse421, launched in 2015, is a cultural space that encourages artistic expressions, and supports the perceptive processes, in order to reinforce the UAE’s creative community. It was transformed from industrial warehouse located in the Mina Zayed of Abu Dhabi, to a platform for art and culture, design and creativity, performance and music, from regional, international and UAE-based artists, designers and cultural practitioners.
The mission of Warehouse421 is to contribute to public discourse, interactivity and innovative community development, by being a unique and original space that allows audiences to experience these disciplines, through cultural programs and artistic projects. It aims to be an exhibition space that arranges shows by galleries and artists, and set a wider stage for creativity throughout the city.
The conversion of Warehouse421 has been seen by the Salama bint Hamdan Al Nahyan Foundation as part of its mission to support the growth of the arts and cultural scene in the UAE.
