Qatari Week in Brazil
Our Years of Culture Qatar-Brazil team are busy preparing for Qatar Week in Brazil!
Qatar Museums and the Ministry of Culture, Arts and Heritage will launch Qatari Week in Sao Paulo, Brazil, this September. As part of the Qatar-Brazil 2014 year of culture, the event will show Qatar’s history, heritage and values to Brazil, and offers an exciting interactive programme across culture and heritage of both countries.
Every day, from Thursday 18th to Sunday 21st September, there’ll be performances by Qatari bands, food tasting, henna drawings, calligraphy workshops, and much more. Visitors can watch dhow carvers, enjoy a Qatar national dress photo opportunity, and see what a Qatari wedding looks and feels like!
