Sikka Art Fair

16 March - 24 March


Dubai Culture’s flagship event takes place from 16-24 March in Al Fahidi Historical Neighborhood, as usual. This 9th edition features “emerging regional talents” who were asked to work around the theme ‘An Open window to Art and Tolerance’ in line with the UAE’s Year of Tolerance; expect art exhibitions and installations, visual and performing artists, music and film screenings, dozens of practical workshops for adults and kids, poetry and talks (check out Kamal Mussallam on ‘Tolerance, Diversity and All That Jazz’  at 7pm on 19 Mar; or ‘Sound Art Matters’ with Fouad Bechwati, Shadi Megallaa and Lobito Brigante at 7pm on 18 Mar), alongside with home-grown food pop-ups.

This year for the first time Sikka comes in two streams – Sikka By Day, celebrating the Al Fahidi tenants and their art; and Sikka By Night, with more performance and more participation from the wider creative scene. It’s a packed programme. Check it out here.
