Overview

‘Emirati Traditional Games Exhibition’ celebrates traditional heritage elements of the UAE. The exhibition displays artworks inspired by the games Emirati children created to entertain themselves in the past. With time, these traditional games became a crucial aspect of the heritage of the United Arab Emirates.

As part of ‘The National Traditional Handicrafts Festival’ the ‘Emirati Traditional Games Exhibition’ highlights five of the most popular local games: Al Saggala, Al Gaheef, Um Al Eyal, Khoosa Boosa and Adim Al Serra. Continuing on the success of last year’s edition, the exhibition’s second edition features a selection of five professional Emirati artiste’s creative installations of the featured games.

The exhibition is designed to instill national pride and pass on UAE’s heritage to future generations while promoting UAE’s heritage amongst residents and tourists.
The event also supports UAE artists by commissioning and giving them the opportunity to showcase and display their work to the national and international audience.
 

The highlighted events include:

  • Al Sagla
  • Al Gaheef
  • Um Al Eyal
  • Khoosa Boosa
