SIKKA 2013

We had a great time at the opening of the 2013 SIKKA Art Fair! Held in the Al Fahidi Historical Neighborhood (formerly known as Bastakiya), the Art Fair showcases Emirati and Dubai-based artistic talent with special events including outdoor film screenings, live music and entertainment, cultural walks, artist led talks, workshops and educational activities.

SIKKA draws its name from the alleyways between the historic houses of Dubai, and serves as a metaphor fitting the young and upcoming artists who seek to establish their creative and professional paths through their participation in the fair. I just wish I had taken some photos of all the yummy food that was part of the evening – they were wonderful enough to keep even the pickiest of attendees (Jordon!) happy throughout the art-filled evening.
