The Ministry of Culture and Knowledge Development was launched in 2006 to highlight the UAE’s fast growing community and thriving youths while not losing sight of its heritage and cultural scene. The Ministry aims to revive the UAE’s heritage by inspiring and encouraging the creative talents abundant among the youths of today. It is responsible for promoting and investing in the energies of young people, inspiring them and adding to their artistic abilities.
The Salama bint Hamdan Al Nahyan Foundation’s mission is “to invest in the future of the United Arab Emirates by investing in its people.” To that end, it develops and supports strategic initiatives in the areas of education, arts, culture, heritage, and health. The Foundation is the family foundation of Sheikha Salama bint Hamdan Al Nahyan and was founded by Her Highness in 2010.
