ArtDayMe : On July 7th, Eissa Al Awadhi, the creator of the @ma3an.ae platform, presented an event at Jossa by Alserkal in Dubai which featured an art-psychology workshop, addresses on creativity, music, video art, and a public discussion. Those who are interested in creativity and the arts were pleased with the programme, which was organized under the title "Together we celebrate creators and their influence." At the beginning of the interact, Al Awadhi highlighted the importance of creativity in the contemporary world. He explained his unique objective to assist creativity and creators, by creating the @ma3an.ae platform with the tagline "Together for artistic creation". The show featured both spoken and unspoken Arabic music, and on the top level, a video piece played continually in a designated space. Another appealing aspect of the evening was the "controversy" workshop that Emirati artist Fatima Omar led throughout. The workshop was an attempt to let the audience confront their inner unconscious via creative and psychological inventiveness. Those who were interested in the performance would choose a phrase at random from a box when they arrived that would reveal something about their inner state. They would then choose hues that reflected their inner feelings, blow on the little piece of paper to guide the colour spot, and see Mrs. Omar. To make sure they would always remember the emotion of that moment, she would first cut a portion of the coloured pattern before using a machine to create a brooch for the audience. In reality, each participant could leave the workshop and @ma3an.ae platform with a personal work of art that expressed how they felt.
