Quoz Arts Fest
22 - 23 January 2016 | Alserkal Avenue
Quoz Arts Fest is a celebration of art and culture in the industrial neighborhood of Al Quoz. In 2016, QAF invited artists from a variety of disciplines, including visual art, music, dance and design, to engage with the Al Quoz community. Taking place over two days, the festival included artist workshops, performances, walks, and interactive installations that invited collaboration with the public.
The ethos of this year’s QAF was an open invitation to “Curate Your Day”, asking visitors to choose a route of exploration through Al Quoz that reflected their interests and stirred their curiosity. Upon entering Alserkal Avenue, visitors could start at the “Curate Your Day” kiosk, where staff and volunteers were available to answer questions, suggest routes to match visitors’ interests, or book workshops and tours that introduced people to the dozens of artists, galleries, performing arts spaces, design and non-profit organisations in the neighbourhood.
