Be­fore it kicks off in Fe­bru­ary 2018, the sixth Ras Al Khaimah Fine Arts Fes­ti­val (above) is ac­cept­ing sub­mis­sions from Au­gust 20-Oc­to­ber 20. Both bud­ding artists and es­tab­lished tal­ents from across the world can sub­mit their cre­ations un­der four cat­e­gories: Pho­tog­ra­phy, vis­ual arts, film and stu­dent work. This year the vis­ual arts cat­e­gory adds a new sub-cat­e­gory: Re­cy­cled art. Par­tic­i­pants must use re­cy­cled ma­te­ri­als from the emi­rate in their sub­mis­sions. You don’t have to scrounge for de­bris and junk – sim­ply con­tact the RAK Waste Man­age­ment Agency who’ll help you source raw ma­te­ri­als. Visit rak­fin­earts. ae. The Shaikh Zayed Grand Mosque Cen­tre has ex­tended their open call for sub­mis­sions for Haj: Mem­o­ries of a Jour­ney. The ex­hi­bi­tion opens on Septem­ber 20 with a gallery of sou­venirs that Mus­lims the world over col­lected dur­ing their Haj pil­grim­age or were given by af­ter their re­turn from Makkah. You can sub­mit your sou­venirs from Makkah un­til Au­gust 3; call 02 599 5267.
