About the Cultural Office

The Cultural Office of Her Highness Sheikha Manal bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum was established in 2013 to support the development of the region’s arts movement and to strengthen the UAE’s standing as a global hub for culture and creativity.

In line with its vision, The Cultural Office serves as a leading platform for nurturing and recognising emerging as well as established artists through collaborations with relevant local and international organisations and dedicated art, culture and creativity initiatives. Through its ongoing efforts, The Cultural Office is committed to promoting the best art practices from across the globe, whilst respectfully celebrating and preserving the cultural legacy of the Arab world.
