Alserkal Avenue has announced a pay-it-forward initiative to help tenants.

Business owners in Dubai's creative hub can apply for a subsidy by proposing ways to help each other, or members of the public.

We're hearing that so far, all companies in the art district's streets have benefitted.

At this time of year, Dubai's arts season would usually be in full swing and we'd be enjoying the galleries of Alserkal as part of the community's regular 'Lates' event after dark.

However, in the wake of COVID-19, artists have taken their work online to www.alserkal.online/, which offers 360-degree walkthroughs of 300 artworks and interviews with artists.

Check it out if you're missing your fix of art and inspiration.
