New opportunities for art. Public Art Strategy

At the beginning of the year His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of Dubai Executive Council, has approved the ‘Rehabilitation and Revitalisation of Al Fahidi Historical Neighbourhood Strategy’ and the ‘Public Art Strategy’ that form part of a broader strategic framework to preserve local heritage and strengthen Dubai’s position as a city at the forefront of shaping the global and regional cultural landscape.

This wonderful historical place will be transform into a platform for young people to showcase their creative talent and start-up companies in the cultural sector to showcase their offerings. It also aims to rehabilitate the neighbourhood’s facilities and infrastructure as well as improve its general appearance.

Supporting cultural diversity and empowering the cultural and creative sectors will make the emirate a global creative economy hub, an incubator for talent and a destination for art and culture enthusiasts.

His Highness further said: “We seek to turn Al Fahidi Historical Neighbourhood into a leading cultural destination that highlights our nation’s authentic architectural and urban heritage. We also adopted the Public Art Strategy that will contribute to making Dubai a globally unique ‘open art gallery’ that offers distinctive creative and cultural experiences.”

The Public Art Strategy aims to promote new artistic trends, cultural innovation and the new creative movement in the emirate through a unified governance framework.

Three main points of the Public Art Strategy include:

  • Economic growth by stimulating cultural tourism, creating new opportunities for local investment and creating new jobs.
  • Development of the cultural infrastructure by encouraging youth to contribute to improving technical infrastructure, advancing Dubai’s competitive position in terms of cultural interaction, and maintaining the emirate’s tourism and cultural identity.
  • Sustainable urban and community development through the enhancement of societal connections between different nationalities through art
