Spearheaded by Expo City Dubai in collaboration with AGB Creative and curated by luminaries Amna Abulhoul and Anthony Bastic AM, the festival aims to ignite the spirit of Al Wasl Plaza with an enchanting blend of Emirati artistry and international creativity.

At the heart of the festival is a celebration of Emirati talent, nurturing local artists and offering them a global stage to showcase their brilliance. Dr. Saeed Mubarak bin Kharbash, CEO of the Arts and Literature sector at Dubai Culture, emphasized the festival’s role in enhancing the cultural landscape and providing a platform for artists to express their Emirati identity and diverse perspectives.

The festival’s Executive Creative Director, Amna Abulhoul, envisions the event as a canvas for Dubai’s heartbeat, where each illuminated piece of art tells a story etched in light. Al Wasl Plaza transforms into a luminous epicenter, weaving together personal journeys, cultural heritage, and profound inspirations, serving as an ode to Emirati identity and pride.

Amna Abulhoul further expressed a commitment to empowering local talents and nurturing emerging artists, fostering a sense of nationalism as their narratives unfold on the global stage.
