Dubai Culture and Arts Authority is to hold the first edition of the Dubai Calligraphy Biennale, a contemporary event taking place across Dubai from 1 to 31 October 2023, with the participation of a group of calligraphers and artists from all over the world. The Biennale celebrates the successes achieved by the Dubai International Arabic Calligraphy Exhibition over the course of 10 editions, and
reflects the Authority's keenness to highlight the importance of calligraphy as an expressive and aesthetic tool that embodies creativity, in addition to building a global platform for discovering and empowering new talent. This comes within the framework of the Authority's commitment to achieving Dubai's cultural vision aimed at cementing the emirate's position as a global center for culture, an incubator for creativity, and a thriving hub for talent.
