Sharjah Children Biennial was launched in 2008 as the first of its kind in the country and the GCC region. The biennial supports and sponsors children's talent in the discipline of plastic arts. Sharjah Children Biennial was established in line with the vision, and under the directives, of His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council and Ruler of Sharjah, and with the support of his wife, Her Highness Sheikha Jawaher bint Mohammed Al Qasimi. The biennial is founded on a set of fixed cultural and artistic values. Its mandate is to promote artists and talents, support their cultural experiences, and develop their aesthetic sense for producing creative works of art.
Sharjah Children Biennial is held every two years with local, regional and international participation. The biennial aims to support creative learning and play in a variety of artistic styles, as well as enriching the creative talents of children and youth in various artistic disciplines.
