Inspired by Muharraq: Photography Open Call

Muharraq has been awarded by UNESCO Creative Cities Network as “Creative City of Design”. Muharraq is a pioneer city where the combination of history, art and architecture has served as the primary inspiration in revamping urban life. With its unique Arabic character combined with international standards of modernity, Muharraq plays a very special role within the Gulf Region. The city presents many opportunities for creativity throughout various types of public events; all of which serve to reskill Bahrainis, build cultural confidence and create synergies on an international level. The magnificent structures are not merely an imprint of the significant past but also an inspiration. As a center of trade, Muharraq has a multicultural character where different nations interact and live together as a part of the local community for centuries.

The development of the city intensively relies on the strong partnership of heritage & creativity. These two pillars strengthen the identity and belonging of the community while helping face the challenges of the future in an imaginative way.

Inspired by Muharraq is an open call online exhibition that seeks to highlight the architectural scenes and skyscape of the city of Muharraq. The city has undergone a series of changes, upgrades and restorations, giving the audience a wealth of inspiring material to work with.

Selected artworks will form an online exhibition under the Studio 244 sub-page and will be uploaded for permanent access. Chosen artworks may also be highlighted on our social media platforms.
