The inaugural days will open with a walk from Sharjah’s dhow port to the Old Al Jubail Vegetable Market; a press conference by Maurice Hilgado, chief of the Huatacondo community (northern Chile) in the Al-Qasimiyah School; and an awakening ceremony by the custodians of the Ngurrara Canvas II, which will be displayed in the Sharjah Art Foundation. Each event will be followed by a series of performances, talks, and screenings by Triennial participants and invited guests. The music programme, developed in collaboration with Ma3azef (an online magazine dedicated to contemporary Arabic music), will feature a variety of performances across the days.
