The ninth edition of Bahrain For All kicked off yesterday, bringing together more than 50,000 people from over 40 local and expatriate communities to showcase their respective cultures. The event was inaugurated by Capital Governor, H.E. Shaikh Hisham bin Abdulrahman Al Khalifa, and will continue today 10am to 10pm pm at Bahrain Bay.
Held under the theme Leaving Nobody Behind, this year’s event features performances by the Indian, Pakistani, Sri Lankan, Bangladeshi, Nepali, Filipino, Sudanese, Ethiopian, Tunisian, Egyptian, Jordanian, Thai, Indonesian, and Malaysian communities, among others. The highlight of the evening is showstopper performances by Bahraini rap artist Flipperachi who shot to fame with his single ‘Ee La’, and DJ Westside (Fahad). The event is being hosted by popular emcee Ali ‘Fingerz’ Esbai.
This year, for the first time, the event also features a sensory room for the differently abled community, set up in cooperation with therapists from Steps Rehabilitation Centre who will provide expert guidance and consultation at the event. A sensory room is a specially designed room which combines a range of stimuli, including lights, colours, sounds, textures and aromas, to help individuals engage and develop their senses in a safe environment. Sensory rooms can help those who have learning difficulties, developmental disabilities or sensory impairments learn to interact with the world around them.
Bahrain For All is supported by the Capital Governorate with logistical support provided by the Office of His Royal Highness the Prime Minister, Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa.
