It has a very important focus for this edition: Sustainability…

Art fans, you may be disappointed that the big art festivals are over, but don’t fret as there’s still plenty more to see. One to take note of is DIFC Art Nights taking place on Tuesday, March 16 and 17, 2023.

The popular Art Nights, now in its 15th edition, will take place at the Gate Village in DIFC. In keeping with HH Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nayhan’s declaration that 2023 will be the ‘Year of Sustainability’, the theme is Art for change: Building A Sustainable Future.

Visitors to DIFC Art Nights will be able to see artworks that are all about sustainability.

The theme also helped exhibiting artists think about how they can be more mindful of how they create their pieces. It will also encourage countless others thus paving a way for positive change. 

The exhibitions are created by international and local artists. Works include photography by trailblazing Emirati photographer and artist Jassim Al Awadhi; Gallery Inside The Box – an NFT-based artistic initiative created using sustainable materials and much more.

DIFC Art Nights has also teamed up with artists across a number of schools in Dubai and Qatar in a bid to encourage the younger audience to engage in art in a meaningful way. You will be able to purchase these works of art on the night and all sales will directly benefit people of determination.
