Dubai Culture announced six-year strategic plans for the overarching aim of positioning Dubai as a global centre for culture and a thriving hub for talent.
This new roadmap seeks to create the fastest route to recovery for Dubai’s cultural industry from the COVID-19 crisis. Following the approval of its new direction and in alignment with the continuous encouragement and support of Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, Dubai Culture submitted the new roadmap under the supervision of Sheikha Latifa to The Executive Council of Dubai.
The roadmap outlines the key pillars to fully empower the authority as a regulator and facilitator of the cultural and creative sector. It also seeks to facilitate the authority’s pivotal role in promoting the development and sustainability of the city’s cultural ecosystem and creative economy.
Sheikha Latifa said: “The creative sector is a crucial contributor to a country’s GDP as well as its global reputation and will play a role in our rapid recovery from this global pandemic. This year will see us cascading the strategy across the Authority and preparing the internal and external infrastructure to support the delivery of Dubai Culture’s roadmap.”
