The ArtBus, your guide to art fairs, galleries, talks and events taking place in Dubai.

The ArtBus is back for its busiest year yet. Now in its sixth year, the ArtBus offers a diverse view of Dubai’s arts and culture scene, and with three routes each taking in a distinct arts area in Dubai, there’s something for every art lover.

Along the routes passengers will see exhibitions at Dubai’s independent galleries and visit annual fairs Art Dubai and SIKKA 2012. Accompanied by art guides the day-long tour is a chance to see art by international, regional and local artists while meeting like-minded people.

What’s more, the ArtBus will feature exclusive artworks by UAE artists, which have been specially commissioned this year by SIKKA an initiative of the Dubai Culture & Arts Authority (Dubai Culture), the Emirate’s dedicated Authority for culture, arts, and heritage.
