Organised by Abu Dhabi’s Department of Culture and Tourism and open to all schools, the programme is open to student visits from Sundays to Thursday, from 8am to 2pm.

It offers tours of the ancient fort structure where the centre is located, alongside a series of workshops exploring arts and culture. Al Qattara Arts Centre is fully equipped with classrooms, an art and pottery studio, a digital room for photography classes, a showroom, a library, and a reception office for visitor services.

Students will also get the chance to visit the Al Qattara Souq and the Qattara Oasis, where they can learn about the traditional architecture of the popular market area and historical oasis ecosystem and the Aflaj irrigation system.

The programme is open for all schools to register during the current semester and will return next semester.
