Reconnecting Arts

Reconnecting is a showcase of eighteen established and emerging Qatari artists and six filmmakers reflecting on the ways they connect with their identity, culture and surroundings in an era in which their country is constantly shifting. The exhibition showcases a diverse and refreshing selection of work that encourages dialogue about the power of connection and the importance of reconnecting with the community. With this, Reconnecting Arts, invites the audience to reflect on their own identity as well as discover similarities between them, the work and the artists. A series of events, workshops and film screenings will take place for the public. All family friendly.
