Don’t forget to book your place on the Art Bus. It is really the best way to get around the city to see the many shows and events that are going on this week and this weekend. The Art Bus has been running for 10 years and is hosted by Dubai Culture and Art Authority.

Every year artists are commissioned to design the buses, which drive around the art districts for three days over Art Week shuttling people around. This year, three GCC based artists created designs to cover the exterior of the bus, with a literature theme. They are Emirati Fatma Saeed, Australian Michal Teague and Mawadah Muhtasib from Saudi Arabia.

You can catch the bus on Thursday, Friday or Saturday from Souk Madinat Jumeirah at 10am and you will visit Al Quoz, DIFC, Dubai Design District, and Al Fahidi Historical Neighbourhood. You will return at approximately 5pm and then, if you still have the art stamina, you can go on to Art Dubai.

It is a bargain at only Dh50 a ticket. I would go and book one now if I were you! Email community@thejamjardubai.com, or call 4 3417303.
