Sheikh Mohammed's new artistic initiative for Dubai
On Monday, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, Vice President and Ruler of Dubai, launched Dubai Speaks to You, his latest project that aims to unite the country's best artists in a revelry of the city and its people.
"We are giving you the opportunity to make your city into an open-air museum. Dubai is your canvas," Sheikh Mohammed told young artists attending an event at the Dubai Government's Media Office. "We celebrate innovation, art and beauty. Your talent and creativity will invite visitors, citizens and residents to explore the many facets of Dubai's rich diversity and pioneering spirit"
"And this is an invitation to all artists in the UAE who want to participate in this project." Sheikh Mohammed added.
This project, the inaugural initiative of Brand Dubai, will be a joint project between property developers and the artists.
Brand Dubai will be working with Nakheel, Meydan, Emaar, Dubai Holding and Meraas Holding to ensure that prime locations across the city will be available for artists to start work on.
