The forthcoming Qasr Al Hosn festival soon to be held in Abu Dhabi will highlight the some iconic structures and cultural aspects.
The event is scheduled to be held from 11-21 February 2015. The Cultural Foundation Building is engraved in memory of Abu Dhabi residents.
As part of the festival programme, areas of the Cultural Foundation will be re-opened to the public and will revived through a number of curated interactive activities and performances. Visitors will also be educated on the current conservation status.
The building will also play host to a series of performances in its open air Amphitheatre, as well as a number of arts and crafts workshops.
An ongoing conservation programme by Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority (TCA Abu Dhabi) aims to revive the building. One of the key performances at this year’s event is the Gahwa. This concept was launched in Qasr Al Hosn Festival 2014 to celebrate the heritage of Emirati coffee making.
