The festival features an exciting array of workshops, artistic experiences, guided tours, family activities and talks for visitors of all backgrounds. While emerging artists can enjoy discussions on various creative mediums, families and children will have a chance to create music and generative art under the supervision of world class talent.

Noor Riyadh combines the highest quality light artworks from leading international and Saudi artists, across the largest city footprint of any light art festival worldwide.

Staged under Riyadh Art, the festival aims to nurture local talent and inspire youth to drive Saudi Arabia’s creative economy.

Riyadh is on a 10-year mission to become one of the world’s most liveable and competitive cities, a global center that is open for business, and one that welcomes everyone from around the world.

With a young and rapidly growing population of more than 7 million residents, Riyadh is transforming into a vibrant and cosmopolitan metropolis.

The Riyadh Art project was developed to turn the whole capital into a creative canvas – a gallery without walls – to enrich lives, ignite creative expression and kindle the creative economy.

Riyadh Art is a demonstration of the open, accessible, and creative transformation of the capital, where the exchange of ideas through creative expression develops a deeper sense of mutual understanding and respect.
