The Department of Culture and Tourism - Abu Dhabi (DCT) has launched CulturAll, an online platform for the city’s biggest cultural attractions, including museums and landmarks to introduce virtual content.

Manarat Al Saadiyat, Qasr Al Hosn, Berklee Abu Dhabi, Cultural Foundation and Abu Dhabi Art are among those who will offer programmes and experiences online such as traditional crafts and practices, contemporary art, historic sites and music, all of which has been specially created to enjoy via DCT’s social media channels.

The content on CulturAll will be divided into three themes: #CultureAllCreate will see guidelines, demos, tutorials and instructions for those who would like to share their own artistic creations on the platform, #CultureAllExplore asks you to explore and discover new things via video footage, recordingsand other published material from previous Abu Dhabi cultural events, and #CultureAllMeet is an opportunity to learn about various ideas and concepts from experts around the world with sessions by artists, historians, architects and more.

“We have created CulturAll as a way for those in Abu Dhabi, the wider UAE, and indeed across the globe to continue to learn, engage and expand horizons when it is not physically possible to visit sites” said HE Mohamed Khalifa Al Mubarak, Chairman, DCT Abu Dhabi.

“We strongly believe that culture is a fundamental and invaluable building block of society. Active cultural engagement not only stimulates creativity but brings us together, reinforces our collective identity, and becomes a support that we can draw upon. It is our hope that CulturAll can aid in strengthening our sense of unity and keeping our hearts and minds open to inspiration, no matter where we are in the world.”
