I attended Narmeen’s collaging workshop, and it was well worth it. Not only did I have a lovely time and took home an interesting collage, I also got the opportunity to get back in touch with my creative side and meet some lovely, interesting people. There were a few surprising moments of vulnerability and sharing, but that only brought us all closer in the spirit of creation.

‘Dubai Jiggy’ – Narmeen’s baby is an awesome platform in which like-minded artist can be themselves. If you are a beginner and wanting to explore the inner artist in you, there’s always a platform that you can let this inner talent come-out. She offers different workshops that will definitely fit any artist, whether you are a beginner or an expert level. Her workshop fee doesn’t break the bank too! That’s a big bonus! How awesome is that?

Hi, I’m glad you’re reading this. It means you’re curious about what Narmeen can do for you, or what she’s all about. I can’t summarize everything she does. I can say however, that she does them well. I’ve seen her speak to a room full of people at the edge of their seat, I’ve also worked directly with her on two events that were delivered on time and fulfilled the project needs. She’s passionate about helping artists and can help you, whether you’re an artist, or looking to connect with artists. I hope that helped, now go say hi to Narmeen, even if you’re not sure how she’ll help you. She’ll find a way.

Narmeen Naser brings art to everyone in many formats and platforms. She is welcoming to everyone at all levels of art passion and creation. If I needed to Network, some of her events are ideal for making those connections. I always look forward to the different types of programs she offers and the variety of classes. Narmeen makes art in Dubai accessible to everyone!

Narmeen and her team were AMAZING!! Together we hosted a group of disadvantaged women and children for lunch and entertainment. Narmeen was so happy and excited to volunteer her time and help out. The activities were inventive, interesting and exciting and the crowd loved them. Would definitely use her services again.

Tena Pick

Narmeen has passion and talent in spades. She is such a positive driving force in the art and impact community in Dubai and a great mobilizer.
Nermeen and I have worked together on a few art for impact projects and her dedication to making the world a better place is infectious. Narmeen has a rare combination of talent, grit and practical mindset, which distinguishes her from most change-makers. She is an exceptionally talented facilitator, whose sessions have inspired many to explore their own creativity.
I am a true believer in everything she does and cannot wait to see what is next for Dubai Jiggy!
