DUBAI, 11th January, 2018 (WAM) -- The Dubai Culture and Arts Authority, Dubai Culture, has hosted its ‘Carnival of Ideas’ spring forum through the Department of Cultural and Heritage Programmes and the Dubai Heritage Development Centres.
The two-week programme ran from 17th to 28th December 2017, featured innovative series of workshops and activities, as well as cultural and heritage events exclusively for fifth to ninth grade female students aged 10 to 14 years old.
The forum’s main objective was to establish and strengthen ethical habits and values, while also demonstrating the authority’s eagerness to encourage students to put their free time toward beneficial and fun activities. Through the workshops, innovative ideas were supported and prizes were presented to the best participants, and each student was awarded a certificate of participation.
Fatima Lootah, Director of the Dubai Heritage Development Centres, said, "Dubai Culture is delighted to have hosted this event, which attracted a large number of students who took advantage of their free time during the school holidays to participate in enriching activities. We would like to thank all of the governmental institutions and community centres that helped us to organise the forum and achieve our goals."
