The Culture Summit Abu Dhabi 2017

Organised by Department of Culture and Tourism - Abu Dhabi


Abu Dhabi will be site of a high-level international summit that will bring together leaders from the worlds of government, the arts and media to address the role culture can play in addressing some of the great challenges of our time.  It will also explore how new technologies are changing the very nature of culture and cultural interactions worldwide with major consequences for education, our economies, politics and virtually every other dimension of our lives.

The event will be hosted by TCA Abu Dhabi and presented in conjunction with The FP Group, publishers of Foreign Policy Magazine, and TCP Ventures, LLC, a producer of artistic ventures and an advisory firm focused on issues associated with the arts and culture. 

The summit will seek to bring together delegations (live and virtual) representing almost every country in the world to discuss common interests, create new collaborations and address in concrete ways challenges ranging from the preservation of cultural heritage to understanding the disruptions likely to be associated with emerging technologies, from bringing arts education to the young to finding new ways to finance the arts, from combatting threats like extremism to developing public policies that promote creativity and social development. 

Attendance at this event is by invitation only. If you are an artist, public official, media or technology executive and would like to inquire about this event, please click here
