Hayy Explorers

Hayy Explorers

Little ones and creative tweens now have a room of their own at Jeddah’s home for the arts!

Following Art Jameel’s life-long-learning philosophy, Hayy Explorers is a dedicated makerspace for ages 5-18 opening on October 27.

Specially designed and equipped to encourage young people to explore, experiment and create, Hayy Explorers offers a dynamic programme of walk-ins, scheduled workshops and after-school clubs, as well as programmes catered to Arts Educators and artists/teachers.
The opening season of Hayy Explorers kicks off a 4-month long curated programme of walk-ins and workshops drawing inspiration from the upcoming Hayy Arts exhibition ‘At the Edge of Land’ which looks at landscapes, seascapes, coastal areas, and movement in between both.

Wednesdays and Thursdays
Schools: 10:00 am – 2:00 pm
Walk-in Activities: 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Stop by Explorers for our walk-in activity zones: Read, Draw, and Make! Our walk-in activities offer an opportunity for our young visitors to engage in the themes and materials they see in our exhibitions and film programmes. 

No prior registration required, just walk in and register on the spot.


Workshops are designed to give our young visitors an opportunity to learn and build their arts and design skills. We work with artists, art-educators, storytellers and craftspeople to bring you a diverse programme of workshops designed for different age groups and interests. 


Stay tuned for our after-school programme coming to you in 2024!
