Culture and Community

Etihad Museum, an entity managed by Dubai Culture & Arts Authority (Dubai Culture), the Emirate’s dedicated entity for culture, arts and heritage, has launched a ‘Teachers Pack’ as part of the educational programmes to celebrate International Museums Day. This year, the international occasion falls on 18th May and will take place under the theme ‘Hyperconnected museums: New approaches, new publics’.

Last year, GuavaPass, one of the fastest growing lifestyle and fitness platforms in Asia and the Middle East, carefully tracked their user's behaviour during Ramadan. The data shows that while members were still using the platform to book fitness classes during the holy month, they were more likely to book lower intensity exercises. 

Keeping in the spirit of the auspicious onset of Ramadan this month, Better Life have joined forces with the Ramadan Sharing Fridge.

Dubai Culture & Arts Authority (Dubai Culture), the Emirate’s dedicated entity for culture, arts and heritage, is celebrating International Museums Day by offering visitors free entry to Etihad Museum and Dubai Museum. Visitors are invited to enjoy the Etihad Museum at no cost on Friday 18th and Saturday 19th May, with the Dubai Museum also opening its doors free of charge on Saturday 19th May.

The firing of a cannon to signal the end of the fast is a convention long-associated with the Holy Month of Ramadan, and Madinat Jumeirah in collaboration with Dubai Police are keeping this tradition alive.
