About Us

In Arabic, a “sekka” translates to  a street that links neighbourhoods together. 

Established in 2017, and headquartered in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, Sekka is an online magazine that’s dedicated to documenting Khaleeji stories, historical and contemporary, and sharing them with the world, through snackable written articles, colorful photo stories, and videos.

It is the first online magazine and publication to be managed by Khaleejis and narrated primairly by the people of the Arabian Gulf Region.

All our content is completely FREE and always will be, because we believe that there should be no barriers to acquiring knowledge.

We feature regional game changers, and discuss lifestyle, travel, opinion, creative, and arts and culture stories that are significant and relevant to this part of the world and the times we live in.

We thrive on original content, new perspectives, and quality production of visuals and text. Since our launch, over 25 of our storytellers have been travelling mainly across the Arabian Gulf region and beyond to discover the untold, the jaw-dropping, and the overlooked.

After all, if we don’t tell our own stories,  someone else will,  and it won’t be the same.
