Dubai Culture & Arts Authority (Dubai Culture), the Emirate’s dedicated entity for culture, arts and heritage, has announced that it will participate in ‘Careers UAE 2018’ as part of the Dubai Government Stand. The leading national fair for job seekers and employers will run from 13th to 15th March 2018 at the Dubai World Trade Centre.

Dubai Culture’s team will offer UAE nationals seeking jobs in the culture and arts sector with a number of supervisory and specialised opportunities in various departments of the Authority. Job seekers can also visit the ‘Dubai Careers’ website launched by Dubai Smart Government last year, where the Authority will announce the available vacancies. Dubai Culture also invites people with determination to visit the stand, as the authority provides the ideal work environment for them to ensure their integration into society, enhance their individual productivity, and enable them to be significant contributors to the Emirate's growth and development.

Mohammad Al Mansoori, CEO of Operations Support Sector at Dubai Culture, commented: "Our continued participation in ‘Careers UAE’ each year reflects our ongoing commitment to promoting and supporting Emiratisation. The fair also provides us with an opportunity to discover Emirati talents who have the capabilities and competencies to drive our initiatives and projects in the fields of culture, arts, and heritage, and help us to achieve our objectives."

‘Careers UAE’ is the leading employment fair for UAE nationals. Organised by the Dubai World Trade Center with government, semi-government and private companies working in more than 20 different sectors, the three-day event welcomes over 100 local and international exhibitors and companies to showcase their available vacancies and attract young talent and graduates to work and train in different fields.

Dubai Culture aims to enhance Dubai’s cultural scene and draw attention to the Emirate’s rich heritage with a variety of initiatives that take place throughout the year. The Authority’s mandate is to build bridges of constructive dialogue between different civilisations and cultures through enriching initiatives that benefit the Emirate’s citizens, residents and visitors.

About Dubai Culture & Arts Authority:

Dubai Culture & Arts Authority (Dubai Culture) was launched on 8th March 2008 by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, in order to drive the growth of the city’s artistic and cultural landscape. The Authority has grown to play a major role in the realisation of the Dubai Plan 2021, highlighting Dubai as a thriving capital for creative industries and further embedding the Emirate’s credentials as a city of happy, creative and empowered people.

As part of its mandate, Dubai Culture has several initiatives that are focused on strengthening both the historic and modern cultural fabric of Dubai, including Dubai Art Season, the city’s premier umbrella arts initiative which kicks off with Emirates Airline Festival of Literature and encompasses Art Week including Art Dubai, Design Days Dubai, and SIKKA Art Fair – an annual event aimed at promoting Emirati and local artists in the UAE and the wider GCC region. The Authority also manages the Dubai International Arabic Calligraphy Exhibition, which showcases an evocative blend of artworks to celebrate the myriad facets of Arabic calligraphy; Dubai Festival for Youth Theatre, an annual festival that fosters the art of theatre in the UAE; and Dubai Next, a dynamic platform that aims to showcase the Emirate’s cultural ethos and vibrant creative scene on the global stage.

The Authority’s other key initiatives include Creatopia (, which is the nation’s first government empowered virtual community for cultural and creative communities in Dubai, and was launched to encourage the exchange of ideas and the refinement of skills while ensuring ease of doing business within the creative industry.

Dubai Culture also plays a leading role in supporting the UAE National Strategy for Reading 2016-2026, in particular by undertaking a major refurbishment of all Dubai Public Library branches to transform them into state-of-art cultural and artistic hubs. Across all of its branches, Dubai Public Library provides children and young adults with a range of educational and entertaining activities that encourage the use of its facilities. The ‘Our Summer is Filled with Culture & Arts Programme’ is a Dubai Public Library initiative which complements the UAE National Reading Strategy with activities that are open to all age groups and revolve around four key themes: happiness, reading, family and the future.

In addition to its wide range of initiatives, the Authority manages over 16 heritage sites across the Emirate, and is a key government stakeholder in the development of the Dubai Historical District. As the custodian of Dubai’s museum sector, Dubai Culture officially launched Etihad Museum in December 2016. The museum serves as a platform that encourages cultural exchange and connects Emirati youth with their culture and history. As part of the Authority’s mandate to support Dubai’s vision of becoming the focal point for diverse cultural exchange, both regionally and globally, the museums play a vital role in preserving Emirati heritage.
