Ras Al Khaimah Fine Arts Festival 2023

Submit your artworks to be exhibited at the astonishing outdoor settings of Al Jazirah Al Hamra Heritage Village in Ras Al Khaimah, United Arab Emirates.

For the eleventh annual Ras Al Khaimah Fine Arts Festival (RAKFAF), the organizers ask artists, filmmakers, photographers, and poets to consider their relationship with the landscape, plants and animals, fellow human beings, our planet, and the universe.

The organizers are interested in diverse voices and practices that interpret the theme “Nature” in unique, compelling ways. What is our place within nature? How does nature empower creativity? How can art converse with nature?

Submission categories include:

  • Fine Arts and Photography
  • Film
  • Sculpture
  • Poetry
  • Student

Selected artwork included in the Festival will be exhibited in a large-scale, digitally printed format outdoors.

Exhibition costs are covered by the organizers.

RAKFAF is a nonprofit community arts festival designed to showcase the work of local and emerging artists, photographers, and filmmakers and engage the community through a diverse calendar of cultural and creative programming. RAKFAF was established to bring the community together to celebrate art, create opportunities for cultural exchange, and support the creative and artistic sectors of the emirate of Ras Al Khaimah.
