Al Qattara Arts Centre events – Culture Events in Abu Dhabi
The popular cultural hub will host two contemporary exhibitions featuring the works of Emirati artists from across the UAE. A collective community exhibition of Mixed Media Arts aims to highlight the use of mixed media as a medium, and a Comic Art exhibition invites artists to exhibit their illustrations, animations and pop art.
In December, the Abu Dhabi Food Festival – the annual celebration of the emirate’s culinary excellence – is also set to make a return to various sites in Al Ain.
The fourth edition of the Traditional Handicrafts Festival will also return in November, providing visitors with a taste of Emirati heritage in one of the most prominent cultural locations in the city, Souq Al Qattara. The festival provides an opportunity to explore some traditional techniques that were used in making fabrics and textiles.
