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.
