 Current Pop Ups 


Qissa’ Go and Aleph Collective presents Festival of South Asia - a program that celebrates South Asia and the Muslim world. 

Join us on December 6th at 3 PM for the exclusive screening of PAKISTAN CHOWK - a documentary exploring the urban intervention by architect & heritage consultant Marvi Mazhar to bring the pre-partition era chowk back to its former charm. 

Aleph Collective is proud to announce its flagship project, ‘ALEPH - A Caravan Serai for South Asia & the Muslim World’ A traveling festival coming this summer! Focused on South Asia and the Muslim world at large, under the theme THE ROOT OF EVERYTHING, the inaugural edition will be held in Dubai!

Be it food or ecology, heritage to public art, literature, films, theatre and music to tech & science, everything will come together to engage, have authentic conversations, collaborate, and create with the  195+ nationalities that we call community.

But what's even better is that you get to have a taste of what's to come in the months prior. Mark your calendars for our first pop-up weekend and come, be a part of our caravan!

After the film, we have a Q&A via video call with the director.
