“The Ras Al Khaimah Fine Arts Festival is a platform for Emirati artists to share artwork with other art lovers and art experts. It also provides people living in the Northern Emirates a way to stay connected with the region’s growing art scene and serves as a stepping-stone for reaching broader international audiences,” says Festival Director, Suqrat bin Bisher.
New this year, there is a recycled art sub-category within Visual Arts, where participants are required to use recyclable materials from Ras Al Khaimah, or focus on the story of recycling to enter. Therefore, the festival has partnered with the Ras Al Khaimah Waste Management Agency which means participants are able to source recyclable materials for their submissions directly from the agency.
Entries will be taken from 20 August 2017 to 20 October 2017 in four categories, film, photography, visual arts, and student work. More information and guidelines: http://rakfinearts.ae/index/en/how-to-enter/
