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.
