The Sharjah Art Foundation is a powerful initiative committed to supporting the development of a flourishing arts environment in the Gulf.
The Sharjah Art Foundation was established in 2009 to carry forward the mission of the Sharjah Biennial. One of the most celebrated cultural events in the region, since 1993 the Sharjah Biennial has formed a cultural bridge between artists, art institutions and organisations locally, regionally and internationally. Reflecting the growing interest and enthusiasm for arts within the region, we work to advance the core initiatives of the Biennial while providing a broad framework of activities that respond to the challenges and opportunities in the art world today.
Sharjah Art Foundation supports the flourishing arts environment in the Gulf by nurturing artistic opportunities and actively pursuing both a regional and international programme of cultural collaboration and exchange.
