Dubai Culture and Arts Authority (Dubai Culture) has launched a programme series at Etihad Museum, through which it will present a wide range of engaging events and activities celebrating the rich cultural heritage of the UAE.

Programmed by Alserkal Advisory, the series will provide an exceptional cultural and entertainment experience to the museum’s visitors throughout the year.

This initiative falls within the framework of Dubai Culture’s commitment to enhance culture accessibility within the society and encourage active participation in the emirate’s cultural and creative scene through engaging programmes in museums and heritage sites that celebrate local cultural heritage.

Khulood Khaled Al Nuaimi, Manager of Events at Etihad Museum, stated that the Etihad Museum programming, which is scheduled to launch on 7th October, 2022, and will continue until June 2023, will celebrate the creative voices shaping the thriving cultural scene in the UAE via the inspiring story of its founding.

The programme includes a monthly schedule of activities and events that enhance the experience of visitors through engaging dialogues and perspectives. The programme launches with a series of screenings entitled Museum Films, which includes a set of films produced by Emirati and resident artists and international directors, shown throughout the programme period in the Museum’s auditorium.

The programme also includes the Museum Talks series, where speakers from various disciplines are hosted in rich dialogue sessions with the aim of spreading insight among attendees on a range of topics, from the tangible and intangible Emirati cultural heritage, the impact and significance of museums within society, and the design dimensions of cultural infrastructure.
