2020 Festival Theme: Connected Communities
The eighth edition of the Ras Al Khaimah Fine Arts Festival will celebrate Connected Communities. Built around shared spaces and commonalities, communities imply genuine connection. Yet what does community mean in an increasingly globalized, technology-driven world? Through this theme, the Festival seeks to explore the many ways people build relationships with others, their surrounding environments, and the natural world. It offers an opportunity to consider past, present, and future while questioning the extent to which intimacy and sense of place can actually be scaled. Through art in all its forms, the Festival hopes to bring to life the many profound ways we experience community and the collective power they have for shaping our small, respective corners of the globe.
Mark your calendars!
The Ras Al Khaimah Fine Arts Festival will return for its eighth edition celebrating the theme of Connected Communities February 1 – March 31, 2020. Grand opening activities will take place the weekend of January 30 - February 1, 2020.
Join us for the Festival’s large-scale visual arts and sculpture exhibition in Al Jazeera Al Hamra Old Town, outdoor film screenings, community art workshops, and school education programs. More information on the schedule and activities will be available closer to the Festival.
