QAIC has long been committed to promoting the role of sports in advocating for social justice and intercultural dialogue within our local and international communities. Our upcoming “Art of Athletics” festival will offer the public a free and engaging opportunity to experience of the arts and cultural dimensions of Qatar’s FIFA World Cup 2022. The festival will include exhibitions of the official World Cup posters and model stadiums, public screenings of matches and family-friendly and community-based art activities designed to facilitate dialogue and intercultural relations through sporting events. We invite all to join our events and continue the conversation on the role and effect of sports in the betterment of our lives. 

We thank the Embassy of the state of Qatar in Washington DC for their in-kind donation to support this event as well as their support and other partners of the upcoming festival.
