Like many other organisations in recent months, BAF 2009 has been affected by international economic challenges when promised sponsorship for the fair didn’t come through. But in the best tradition of all things ‘fringe’ Bastakiya Art Fair has become more of a collaborative effort than ever before, with the entire regional arts community pledging their support and pitching in with entrepreneurial and creative energy to make sure that this integral part of the Middle East’s arts scene, continues for 2009.
