Jubilee Arts

The Jubilee Arts International Arts Festival is a new international programme established in the Diamond Jubilee year to celebrate the global Jamat’s vast artistic skills and cultural traditions, and aims to encourage a deeper appreciation for the arts within the Jamat.

The 2018 Jubilee Arts International Arts Festival (IAF) will take place from 6—9 July, during the Diamond Jubilee Celebration in Lisbon, Portugal. During the multi-day event, hundreds of entrants representing over 14 different art forms will showcase their talents. These artists were selected from the thousands of artists who participated in Regional and National Arts Festivals around the world. The IAF marks the culmination of a year of celebration for the participating artists, and is made up of the following components:


Talent Showcase


Art Gallery


Film Festival


Visitors will be treated to entertainment and artistic expression of many forms during the IAF. Stages will be set up throughout the IAF grounds for host region performances and cultural dances, artist performances, collaborative performances, cultural shows, ambient music, DJs, raas, and panel discussions with industry professionals.

Activities will include pop-up performances, to give the audience an up close and personal feel, as well as late evening events to provide the Jamat an opportunity to immerse themselves in cultures from around the world, and celebrate as One Jamat.
