Dubai Culture & Arts Authority has started showcasing over 800 iconic, high-resolution images including 120 of artefacts and over 70 stories in both Arabic and English that document the emirate’s history and present through the eyes of its residents.

‘Dubai’s Culture & Heritage’ project was launched by HH Sheikha Latifa bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.

Sheikh Latifa said: “Today, I am pleased to be launching ‘Dubai’s Culture & Heritage’ on Google Arts & Culture. Technology and creativity often intersect, resulting in fascinating experiences, and Google Arts and Culture is a prime example. Through this innovative platform, people will be able to embark on a journey to explore Dubai’s unique story, its rich history, vibrant culture and ever-evolving creative scene. The emirate has a unique, dynamic identity rooted in the diversity of its fabric; it is a place of rich culture and creativity that embraces people and cultures from all over the world, and where global excellence is not just an ambition but a reality.”

‘Dubai’s Culture & Heritage’ is the latest project from the Middle East & North Africa region to be introduced on the platform. In the UAE, Google Arts & Culture had previously worked with UAE National Archive and the Barjeel Art Foundation.
