Sheikha Latifa bint Mohammed concludes visits to Dubai’s cultural and creative sites


Her Highness Sheikha Latifa bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Chairperson of Dubai Culture and Arts Authority and member of the Dubai Council has concluded a series of visits and discussions related to Dubai’s creative sector.

During her visit to Alserkal Avenue, Sheikha Latifa said: "Our visits and discussions allowed us to assess first-hand the industry landscape and the situation faced by creatives. The insights we gathered will feed into our new plans for building a robust, sustainable future for the sector in Dubai."

She added that one of the main takeaways was the urgent need to support individual creatives and SMEs in their growth process and extend the assistance they need to operate and innovate with ease.

"We will be working with relevant government entities to identify and implement the solutions necessary to support the industry in its journey of excellence," Her Highness explained. 

Sheikha Latifa's visits and discussions with key players in Dubai’s cultural and creative sector are part of an extensive engagement launched recently to assist the industry with its recovery.

The engagement has featured visits to Dubai Design District (d3), followed by a discussion with members of Dubai’s design community on the current state of the emirate’s design sector.

Dubai Culture also hosted a discussion with emerging writers in the UAE and members of the literary and publishing community on the current state of the industry and its future.

Museums, public libraries, and all other cultural venues in Dubai, including Alserkal Avenue, Art Jameel, d3 and DIFC are currently welcoming visitors.

More announcements on the resumption of annual cultural events in Dubai are expected soon, chief among which are Dubai Design Week, Art Season and Art Dubai that will return in March 2021.
