The Theme — Community
Artists are encouraged to think about the community. Although the 5/6 Initiative marks an important event in Qatari history, it also sparked a remarkable sense of togetherness.
For this year’s 5/6 Initiative, we encourage artists to work around an overarching theme of solidarity and unity.
