About 200 artists and experts are attending a conference seeking to explore the increasing role visual arts play in the modern world.

Set to be opened by HE Sheikha Al Mayassa bint Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani, the inaugural Art for Tomorrow conference will focus “on the art and architecture that is playing a vital role in building communities, developing commerce and enriching lives throughout the globe.”

“The conference will explore the changing dynamics of art and architecture and their potential to change people and places. We will bring together guests drawn from the arts, public and private sectors as well as tourism experts, city planners and business developers,” the organisers say.
