Held under the banner 'A World as Big as Your Imagination', the event will run until February 15, featuring some of the best international young talents whose artworks have been nominated to compete this year.

The opening ceremony of SCB, which is held under the patronage of Shaikha Jawaher bint Mohammed Al Qasimi, wife of His Highness the Ruler of Sharjah and Chairperson of the Supreme Council for Family Affairs, will include a tour of the 376 artworks created by 785 children from across the world.

This year's children's biennial will also feature a number of artistic workshops and interactive activities for children under the supervision of expert artists from various genres of architectural, visual and fine arts.
