The UAE has embarked on a number of ambitious initiatives to create a vibrant cultural scene. Through commissioned art projects, educational programs, infrastructural development, and cultural diplomacy, a variety of local and international organizations have created spaces for engagement, creativity, and social change. What role do policies focusing on women, youth and national development play in the cultural field in the UAE? How do top-down initiatives interact with marginal spaces and non-state actors? This panel discussion includes an interactive and candid conversation with Her Excellency Noura Al-Kaabi, Minister of Culture and Knowledge Development and Chairwoman of Twofour54 to reflect on her personal and professional journey and her aspirations for art and culture in the UAE.

Speaker
Her Excellency Noura bint Mohammed Al Kaabi, Minister of Culture and Knowledge Development for the United Arab Emirates
