The District at du Forum, Yas Island officially opens its gates to welcome the youth aged 14 to 23 to their ultimate hangout this summer. The District, a flagship event in this year’s Abu Dhabi Summer Season by Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority (TCA Abu Dhabi) is designed as a micro-city where its ‘citizens’ can socialize, play, create, explore, find inspiration, make connections or even disconnect if that’s what they’re in the mood for.
The District is divided into five distinct zones called The Alley for tech enthusiasts; The Street filled with performing arts; The Block which is a creative workshop haven with topics from fashion and graphic design to animation, photography and videography; The Park for chilling but still enjoying be it through reading, listening to music, watching or participating in collaborative art or even learning sign language; and The Yard full of culinary surprises. The activities in every area have been built not only to cater to a range of interests but also to accommodate active and creative minds at any level they’re at whether they’re trying it out for the first time or have already mastered that craft. Over 100 local, regional and international guests from more than 20 countries have also been brought in to facilitate these activities, impart their knowledge and ensure that the citizens enjoy and learn, and are entertained and engaged throughout their journey.
To discover the activities happening seven days a week from 12:00pm to 10:00pm and to make the most out of their visit, citizens are encouraged to create their own schedule from The District website. Tickets on Sale Tickets are available from the box office or via www.thedistrict.me/tickets/, Virgin Megastore or Ticketmaster.
