Explorations in the Arts
This program is designed to expand young UAE Nationals’ awareness and knowledge around the future of arts and creative industries in the UAE as well as the careers available in them.
There are three components:
- The UAE based program is in collaboration with arts-related organizations in Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Sharjah where a curriculum has been built that introduces the students to the UAE art scene and allows them to understand the possible careers in it. As the Art scene in the UAE is growing significantly and these students are its greatest beneficiaries it is important to create awareness on its different careers.
- Participating in a month-long hands on experience through a summer internship at an arts-related organization in the UAE.
