WAW X SEF 2021
In November 2021, Wild Arab West participated in the Sharjah Entrepreneurship Festival with an interactive installation called The WAW Career Illusions Exhibition. The concept behind the project was to highlight some of the career related obstacles within the Khaleeji/Arab community.
The success storis of three Emiratis (Obaid Al Budoor, Fatma Saifan & Abdalla Juma) who overcame these challenges were also highlighted as well. The stories acted as a rebuttal of the obstacles and as inspiration to the visitors who may be facing similar fears/doubts.
