Heart of Sharjah Takes the Spotlight at Sharjah Light Festival

Sharjah Light Festival, organised by Sharjah Commerce and Tourism Development Authority (SCTDA), is highlighting the emirate’s architectural monuments and landmarks through unique visual displays across 18 separate locations.

Being one of the most important historical landmarks in the Gulf, the Heart of Sharjah is witnessing a series of shows that reflect the emirate’s cultural progress.

It was included in the 2014 UNESCO World Heritage List, reflecting Sharjah’s leadership in the preservation of its heritage.

The Heart of Sharjah Theater show features a video show called Graphic Playhouse, where artist Bijoy KV takes the ideas of purity, infinity and eternity and moves them to another level with abstract images forming kaleidoscopic variations.

Planned over a 15-year period, to be completed by 2025, Heart of Sharjah seeks to revitalise the heritage district as a vibrant cultural destination by restoring historical buildings, constructing new structures following traditional architecture, and transforming them into hotels, restaurants, cafés, art galleries and markets.
