Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 3 February 2019: Dubai Culture and Arts Authority (Dubai Culture); the Emirate’s dedicated entity for culture, arts, heritage, and literature, in collaboration with the Institut Français in the UAE, successfully concluded the 2019 edition of the ‘Night of Ideas’, at Etihad Museum.

Mrs. Raja Rabia, Consul General of France in Dubai and the Northern Emirates.

Saeed Al Naboodah, Acting Director General at Dubai Culture, said, “The Night of Ideas achieved its objectives, as it attracted eminent thinkers and experts from across the key sectors in Dubai and from around the world. The panel discussion served as a brainstorming session, wherein participants presented pioneering ideas to promote the use of technology in museums and support cultural tourism in the UAE. With the rapid changes in the sector of technology, we must work together while focussing on interests and aspirations of the younger generation.”

For this event, Dubai Culture invited experts and dignitaries from museums and culture industry, including Dr. Noah Raford, Chief Operating Officer and Futurist in Chief at the Dubai Future Foundation; Hani Asfour, Dean at Dubai Innovation and Design Institute; Roei Amit, Director of Digital Department, at RMN-Grand Palais (France); and Lana Shamma, Programmes Manager at Art Jameel, who explored the integration of new technology and its effects on traditional showcase and curation of museums. With digital technology and artificial intelligence as central topics, the panel also discussed tech-based solutions for interactive museum platforms that serve the community with creative ideas and a futuristic outlook.

The event was part of Dubai Culture's efforts to promote a mutual cultural dialogue between the UAE and France, aligned with the UAE Soft Power Strategy, and create a platform to diversify Dubai’s economy through cultural and creative industries and enable cohesion among all segments.  It also contributed to elevate Dubai’s position as a leading global cultural destination and drive the cultural tourism sector in the Emirate.

Dubai Culture aims to enhance Dubai’s cultural scene and draw attention to the UAE’s rich heritage. The Authority’s mandate is to build bridges of constructive dialogue between different civilizations and cultures to enhance Dubai's position as a creative and sustainable global city for culture, heritage, arts, and literature, with the aim to empower these sectors by developing creative and innovative projects and initiatives locally, regionally, and globally.
