Culturally Connected in the Middle East

In addition to supporting Art Dubai, one of the world’s premier global contemporary art fairs, we connect to the exhilarating and burgeoning Middle Eastern art scene through a wide range of contemporary exhibitions and cultural initiatives that engage our guests and colleagues.

Our Kashta Programme honors the history of Dubai as trade centre with modern excursions, such as our Pearl Diving programme, and we work to build social bridges through the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding.
