Responding to COVID-19 with Creativity

Join the Al Qasimi Foundation via Zoom on Sunday, June 28 at 3pm for our next Creative Dialogues session. Hear from Salama Al Shamsi, Director of Qasr Al Hosn, and explore how we can respond to some of the hardships brought by COVID-19 through creative practice. In what ways is the creative and cultural sector responding? How can creativity build community when we are apart?  What can we do during this time to build a stronger, more creative society for tomorrow?
