Featuring artists Ayesha Hadhir, Maitha Al Omaira, Noura Alghafri, Reem Al Mubarak, Sarah Al Nuaimi and Shamsa Al Mansoori, the exhibition explores different practices of nature and our connection to Earth, whether personal, environmental, geographical or ecological. Curated artists will interpret the notions of nature and earthly elements distinctively, producing land art and sculptures that blend into the greenhouse. The exhibition will work as a critical meeting point where everyone wishes to escape digital domination and connect through art and nature.

Workshop | Seeds of Thought
Time: 4pm

After experiencing the greenhouse space and interacting with the artworks and plants, workshop participants will respond by taking part in a planting activity. At the end of the workshop they will be given seeds and are encouraged to take the plants home with them. The seeds remain a symbol of their suspended experience which will grow with time and remind them of life.
