All year round the Alliance Francaise in Dubai’s Oud Metha Road keeps its programme varied and interesting. This summer, they are hosting an art exhibition that doubles up as a game.

L'Île aux 160 erreurs or the Island of 160 Errors was initiated by the Alliance Française of Sabadell in Barcelona in 2011. It showcases the game of Spot-The-Difference in a series of images adapted from the illustrated book by Xavier Salomo and Meritxell Martí. The audience must identify 160 errors that have been hidden in duplicated images and believe me, it is not as easy as it sounds.

Head down to the Alliance Francaise to give it a go yourself.

* L'Île aux 160 erreurs runs until September 4 at Alliance Francaise Dubai, Oud Metha, Street 18, close to American Hospital. Entry is free for all
