Applications are welcome from all art media, and residencies are based in the Al Qasimi Foundation's Studio & Gallery space.

The experience also includes a hosted exhibition in the Studio & Gallery. The submission deadline is August 31, 2019 and more information is available on the Foundation's website.
 
The 8th Annual Ras Al Khaimah Fine Arts Festival

The theme of the 2020 Festival is Connected Communities. Through this theme, the Festival seeks to explore the many ways people build relationships with others, their surrounding environments, and the natural world. The extended call for submissions will close August 31, 2019. To submit a piece, or for more information on the Festival, please visit the Festival website. www.rakfinearts.ae.
