Culture Summit Abu Dhabi to explore new theme

The fourth and first virtual edition of Culture Summit Abu Dhabi will explore the theme of ‘The Cultural Economy and the Economy of Culture’ and will take place from March 8 to 10.

Culture Summit is a forum that convenes leaders from the fields of the arts, design, heritage, media, museums, public policy, and technology, to identify ways in which culture can transform societies and communities worldwide.

Inspired by key discussions from the 2019 edition of the Summit on the financial support and sustainability in the culture sector in the face of rapid societal and economic change, Culture Summit 2021 will examine opportunities to renew the cultural and creative industries in a post-Covid 19 environment and explore how the creative economy can be a positive force for societies and economies.

Culture Summit 2021 is organised by the Department of Culture and Tourism - Abu Dhabi, in collaboration with global partner organisations including, UNESCO, The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and Foundation, the Economist Events, Google, United Nations Conference on Trade and Development, the Design Museum London, Abu Dhabi Cultural Foundation, Louvre Abu Dhabi, Berklee Abu Dhabi, Institut Français, Image Nation, Twofour54, and Abu Dhabi Film Commission

A series of panels, performances, and case studies throughout the event will engage participants with ideas about the role of culture in improving our world. The 2021 edition of the Culture Summit is open for the public. – TradeArabia News Service
