DUBAI: The Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum praised the progress in the cultural scene in the UAE made possible through art projects and events that blend themes drawn from Emirati heritage with modern artistic perspectives.

Sheikh Mohammed’s comments came during a visit to Dubai Canvas, the public art festival organised by Brand Dubai, the creative arm of the Government of Dubai Media Office (GDMO). Sheikh Mohammed expressed his appreciation for aspiring young UAE artists and their work, that he said enriches the country’s cultural scene.

“Creativity fuels the cultural development of civilisations. It helps to build bridges of communication beyond the spoken word,” said Sheikh Mohammed.

The event provides a platform for global artists and some of the most promising young artists in the UAE to exhibit their work.

Sheikh Mohammed was welcomed at the Dubai Canvas venue by the Director General of the GDMO Mona Ghanem Al Marri.
