Education has been at the heart of Art Dubai since its launch in 2007; the fair now has the largest education programme of any such event worldwide, providing opportunities for children through to students, graduates, collectors and enthusiasts.

The Programme includes: Campus Art Dubai, an intensive six-month study programme giving artists, writers, curators and cultural producers the opportunity to develop their practices under the mentorship of world renowned tutors; Art Dubai Fellowship, A network of exceptional writers, artists and curators working in the Region, coming together for a week-long series of intensive workshops during Art Dubai; an artist-led children’s programme (in partnership with The Sheikha Manal Little Artist Program); and year round professional development opportunities including an Internship, Traineeship and Volunteer Programme.

The fair also attracts an exceptionally high level of attendance from universities and colleges, participating in organised trips.
