SynopsisOrganised by Sharjah Children Centers, the 5th Sharjah Children Biennial (SCB), the international cultural and artistic event dedicated to children all around the world, is set to take place from 15 January to 15 February 2017, under the patronage of Her Highness Sheikha Jawaher bint Mohammed Al Qasimi, Chairperson of the Supreme Council for Family Affairs.
The fifth edition of SCB will be held under the theme A World as Big as Your Imagination, with the aim to push childrens imagination to the fore, encouraging them to overcome obstacles and borders through art and through expressing their ideas without restriction. As with its previous editions, the event will work on the principle that young dreams can transform into grand inventions.
Children and young adults aged 6 to 18 years have submitted their artworks to compete in one of SCBs three categories: Architecture Design, Environment, and Fantasy and Reality.
Leading up to SCB, Sharjah Children Centres organised a series of artistic workshops that were held both inside the UAE and abroad over a period of two months. The workshops successfully prepared 882 children, equipping them with the tools, methods and techniques to submit high-quality artworks. Most prominent were the series of workshops held at Zaatari Refugee Camp in Jordan, which gave refugee children an opportunity to explore their creative talents and submit their artworks for the 5th SCB.
The Curator of the 5th Sharjah Children Biennial is Emirati artist Dana Al Mazrouei.
