On Monday morning at M7 in Msheireb, the all-new format for arts and culture programming across Qatar was announced, with the transformation of Qatar Creates from a limited period of events into a year-round national cultural movement, for local and international audiences alike. 

Qatar Creates will now be the all-embracing vehicle that curates, promotes and celebrates the diversity of cultural activities in Qatar, with an unprecedented schedule of high-profile events, exhibitions, live shows, and openings, all geared toward the start of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™, and beyond. 

The new format Qatar Creates and overview of Qatar’s cultural offerings for autumn 2022 were announced on Monday for the first time by Sheikha Al Mayassa bint Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, Chairperson of Qatar Museums and the Doha Film Institute and co-chair of Fashion Trust Arabia.

The unprecedented autumn schedule features 17 exhibitions across five museums and five creative hubs, 10 high-profile events, three live festivals, 15 Qatar Creates lounges and over 80 public art installations across the country. 

Sheikha Al Mayassa said: “As the countdown intensifies toward the opening of the World Cup, we are delighted to share a picture of autumn 2022 in Doha, when the calendar will be overflowing with museum exhibitions, premier fashion events, spectacular music and theater experiences, and eye-opening previews of the exciting cultural future that Qatar is building today.”

In its new form Qatar Creates is a perennial cultural movement that curates, promotes, and celebrates the diversity of cultural activities in Qatar. To provide residents and visitors with an unrivalled opportunity to immerse themselves and fully experience the myriad cultural, leisure and entertainment offerings across the country, Qatar Creates has launched its new One Pass, an online portal that offers a one-stop resource for all of Qatar’s cultural offerings. 

Sheikha Al Mayassa, continued: “One Pass is a gateway to arts and culture for all of our residents and visitors to access to museums, events, festivals, theatrical experiences, and cultural offerings across the country, along with benefits for dining, entertainment, adventure, and fashion. By bringing this all together with the One Pass, our hope is that everyone will have the opportunity to live it all, to experience the very best our country has to offer, turning visitors into ambassadors who will share their experiences and want to return to Qatar again and again.”

Qatar Creates is a cultural initiative that was launched by Qatar Museums (QM) in 2019 to celebrate the inauguration of the National Museum of Qatar. Qatar Creates is an annual celebration of art, fashion, design, culture and architecture through a weeklong series of community events and programmes including fashion shows, exhibitions, tours, workshops and panel discussions.
