Paris Arab World Institute takes part in European Heritage Days 2021 and unveils a program full of discoveries and entertainments to enjoy on September 18 and 19, 2021.

For European Heritage Days 2021, the Arab World Institute sees on a big scale. For September 18 and 19, 2021, this cultural center also called the "Beaubourg Arabe" provides a lovely program of tours and entertainments around the Arabian culture.

You are invited to visit the museum for free all weekend long to discover the Arabian world and the different cultures that contributed to its identity since the Antiquity. About eight events for children and adults will be provided to know everything about the AWI's secrets whilst having fun.

For European Heritage Days 2021, enjoy a tour outside the walls, on Saturday from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. But you can also visit the AWI by yourself and discover the permanent collection, and the exhibition about Divas from Out Kaltum to Dalida.
And did you know the AWI has beehives? There are five of them in the 4th floor's patio. The AWI wishes to raise awareness about issues pollinating insects might encounter and the development of safe and performing urban farming.
All along the weekend, you can also DIY your own Berber square with natural pigments.
And do not forget to enjoy music, and a movie on Saturday at 3 p.m. and 5 p.m.
Enjoy an architecture tour on Sunday at 11 p.m. and be introduced to the Arabic language as well.

And do not forget, many more surprises are to be expected...
