Since 2002, more than three hundred poets, musicians, artists and speakers have showcased work and debated issues at Muharraq and Manama’s historical houses, thanks to the Shaikh Ebrahim bin Mohamed Al Khalifa Centre for Culture and Research. The island’s leading cultural centre has spent the last 15 years saving these houses from decay, restoring them in order to preserve and celebrate Bahrain’s heritage. Now, the centre has commissioned 15 of the nation’s best and most promising local artists to create site-specific projects in 15 of these buildings. And the exclusive works will be unveiled at the launch of an exhibition, called 15/15, on Thursday December 15.
