Cultural carnival from January

With more than 80 events revealed so far, Qatar is all set for a year long carnival marking Doha as the Capital of Arab Culture 2010. Apart from a celebration of the culture and traditions of Qatar, Arab world and Islam, the year 2010 will witness a cultural jamboree of different countries like Syria, India, Morocco among the others, showing how Qatar has become a home to thousands of people from round the world.

The events are set to begin with an opening ceremony in the last week of January featuring a Qatari-Syrian musical drama. The operetta, Bayt Al Hikma or House of Wisdom, will be remembrance of the Islamic Golden Age when artists, engineers, scholars, poets, philosophers, geographers and traders in the Islamic world contributed to the arts, agriculture, economics, industry, law, literature, navigation, philosophy, sciences, sociology, and technology, both by preserving earlier traditions and by adding inventions and innovations of their own. This is identical to the current cultural and educational development that Qatar is witnessing today.

A detail list of events celebrating Doha – Capital of Arab Culture 2010, will be unveiled soon.
