The Dubai Culture and Arts Authority
The dynamic and progressive nature of Dubai required a dedicated governing body that would preserve its values, traditions and heritage while spearheading the Emirate’s development as an influential driver of culture and the arts in the region. The Dubai Culture and Arts Authority (Dubai Culture) was established in 2008 by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, to spearhead and support the development and accelerated growth of the cultural industry in Dubai and position it as the nerve centre that shapes art and culture across the region. Since its inception, Dubai Culture has launched several pioneering initiatives that has enriched the region’s cultural scene.
