Photos: Dubai parking meters get creative makeover


Don’t be surprised if you spot some of the paid parking meters in Dubai decked up in artwork.

Around 100 slots in Jumeirah, Dubai Media City and Al Mustaqbal Street have been given a creative makeover based on the themes of diversity and tolerance.

Six Emirati and expatriate artists have come together for the project as part of the #DubaiSpeaksToYou initiative.

It aims to transform the city into an open-air museum.

Brand Dubai, the creative arm of the Government of Dubai Media Office is implementing the project in partnership with the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA).
