For professional artists and art enthusiasts, Dubai Art Week is the time to celebrate culture and creativity. From Art fairs and pop ups to design exhibitions, the art week offers a flurry of activities in the fields of art and design. One of the highlights of the Dubai Art Season is the Sikka Art Fair. If you and your children enjoy a multitude of arts and crafts, head to the Sikka Art fair to experience a deep dive into the world of creativity and imagination.
Sikka Art Fair is the first annual initiative of its kind created to support and showcase Emirati, UAE and GCC-based artists in the heart of Old Dubai. The popular annual art fair is an initiative by Dubai Culture & Arts Authority, the Emirate’s dedicated authority for culture, arts and heritage, and is also one of the flagship events of Dubai Art Season.
Currently in the seventh edition, the Sikka Art Fair 2017 is being held at the Al Fahidi Historic District in Bur Dubai. SIKKA’s 10-day programme features works of several artists, live music, research initiatives, interactive installations, workshops, film screenings, panel discussions and so much more!
