#MyDubai celebrates one year with special exhibition at Dubai Fountain

Taking place in January and February


In honour of completing one year of the #MyDubai initiative, thousands of people who have contributed their stories of life in Dubai will be rewarded with their photographs and videos set to appear on a giant screen at the heart of one of city's most popular tourist attractions...

#MyDubai was launched by His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, on 5 January 2014, with an invitation for residents and visitors of Dubai to share their experiences of the UAE city and create 'the world's first autobiography of a city'. 

During the initiative's first year, more than 2.5 million images and videos were shared with the hashtag, of which more than 1,650 images and videos were chosen to be displayed on the official instagram account, @MyDubai – also known as the #MyDubai e-museum.

Now, as of tomorrow (January 5) and lasting throughout January, all 1,650+ images and videos will be shown on a 19.2m x 19.2m metre LED screen which has been installed next to the Dubai Fountain, in front of the Burj Khalifa and Dubai Mall.

The #MyDubai screen is expected to become a major attraction for both residents and visitors to the city, with The Dubai Fountain providing the ideal gallery on which to exhibit the beautiful photographs and videos which form the first year of the #MyDubai autobiography.

From February onwards, the #MyDubai screen will then become a live social wall, featuring images and stories in near real-time, providing the opportunity for more contributors to share their #MyDubai story to an audience of millions.
