Artist-in-Residence Program
 
The Al Qasimi Foundation's new Artist-in-Residence program provides opportunities for visiting local and international artists to produce new works and engage in cultural exchange with the Ras Al Khaimah community. 
 
Applications are welcome from all art media, and residencies are based in the Al Qasimi Foundation's Studio & Gallery space. Visiting artists are encouraged to draw inspiration from the Emirates as they work on personal projects and to share their talents with the local community by leading art workshops and classes. 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 8th edition of the Ras Al Khaimah Fine Arts Festival (RAKFAF), which is returning to the recently restored historic village of Al Jazirah Al Hamra Old Town, celebrates the evolving arts scene in the Emirate and champions local artistic talent. 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.

In addition, they seek to support emerging talent in the local film industry while sharing stories that provide unique insights into the region. The extended submission deadline is August 31, 2019 and more information is available on the Foundation's website.
