Qatar America Institute for Culture


In honor of our anniversary, we’re opening our doors for a family-friendly day of fun!

About this event

Join QAIC for our summer open house as we celebrate the Alif Ba exhibition with a building full of fun activities! There will be an alphabet-themed sensory experience, ‘Shorts by Shorties’ student film screenings, musical demonstrations, local vendors, and more!

Alif Ba Exhibition

Co-produced by Qatar Foundation and the National Children’s Museum in honor of the 2021 Year of Culture between the United States and Qatar, the Alif Ba Exhibition is an interactive experience aimed at introducing young audiences to the Arabic alphabet and language through touch and sound.

The Qatar America Institute for Culture (QAIC) has the honor to further the legacy of these pieces through coordinating the travel of the exhibition across the nation. After previously being hosted by the Mahurin Honors College at Western Kentucky University and Al-Bustan Seeds of Culture located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the Alif Ba Exhibition will conclude its tour at QAIC headquarters in DuPont Circle, Washington, D.C.

QAIC cultivates artistic expression and cultural dialogue from the United States, Qatar, and the larger Arab and Islamic worlds.

QAIC serves as a vital hub to convene artists, curators, storytellers, creatives, scholars, and academics, connecting them with a global network that extends beyond its physical space in Washington, D.C.
