Dubai Art Season, Dubai Culture’s flagship umbrella arts event, runs throughout March and April each year under the patronage of Her Highness Sheikha Latifa bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Matkoum, Vice Chairman of the Board of Director at Dubai Culture & Arts Authority (Dubai Culture).
The two-month city-wide activation celebrates its fifth successful edition in 2018, with artistic and cultural events transforming the city with public art displays, outdoor art projects, interactive installations, live performances, workshops, panel discussions and exhibitions that bring art to Dubai’s doorstep in an unmatched celebration of talent, creativity, innovation and cultural diversity.
Dubai Art Season holds pride of place in the city’s busy cultural calendar, kicking off with the Emirates Airline Festival of Literature and featuring headline events including Art Week, which features SIKKA Art Fair and Art Dubai, among hundreds of other initiatives.
As Dubai Culture’s leading annual initiative, Dubai Art Season contributes significantly to achieving the Dubai Plan 2021 vision for a city of happy, creative and empowered people who proudly celebrate their cultural identities. The initiative also fulfils Dubai Culture’s mandate to strengthen the cultural and creative fabric of Dubai by nurturing and supporting both emerging and established local talent, promoting Emirati culture, celebrating the region’s flourishing artistic scene, and attracting international talent and visitors to consolidate Dubai’s position as a global hub for culture and creativity.
