Dear Sail Readers,
As some of you know, April was a busy month with the magazine’s team participating in the Archive80 exhibition. The experience to the team was unique from its kind where most of the team come without art background yet created amazing artworks for the exhibition. Of course, all thanks goes to Alia AlShamsi who curated the exhibition and supported the team in their artworks.
We also have an announcement to make in this month. We have a new member joining Sail team; it is our friend Khalid AlAmeri. He joins us with his column: “Community Talk” in which he aspires to generate healthy discussions, spark positive change surrounding social issues that affect our everyday lives, and more importantly how we can improve and develop as a society to a better tomorrow.
Shaima AlTamimi, one of the initial team members of Sail eMagazine and who supported the magazine since its inception, joins us with a new column: “Food for thought”, in which she aims to touch upon certain topics from the society and entice us to think deeper about them.
Without further due, here are the columns of this month’s issue:
- Archive80 Report: A report on Sail eMagazine’s collaboration with Archive80 and the artwork shown in the exhibition.
