The Dhai Dubai Light Art Festival To Take Place At Expo City
Updated on 04 January 2024

Dubai-ites, brace yourselves; the emirate is all set to get its first-ever Dhai Dubai light art festival in Expo City Dubai. Yep, you read that right! The Dhai Dubai Light Art Festival will illuminate Al Wasl Plaza from 26 January to 4 February. Organised by Expo City Dubai, in strategic partnership with AGB Creative, curators and designers of Vivid Sydney, and the Dubai Culture and Arts Authority (Dubai Culture), this first-of-its-kind event seeks to revive the essence of Al Wasl. 

Under the guidance of Amna Abulhoul and Anthony Bastic AM, Dhai Dubai unfolds as a thoughtful celebration of Dubai's spirit and heritage through light. Nestled in Expo City, this annual event provides a canvas for local artists to transform light into a language of creativity and cultural storytelling. Each installation becomes a dialogue, echoing Dubai's vibrant spirit. 

At Dhai Dubai, visitors can embark on a luminous journey, and experience the fusion of traditional Emirati heritage and cutting-edge artistic innovation. Join this radiant exploration where Dubai's art and culture are illuminated over 10 days of the festival, featuring light art installations, interactive experiences, workshops, and enlightening talks.
