Before the pandemic, the culture and creative industries were one of the fastest growing sectors in the world economy. Sadly it was also one of the hardest struck by Covid-19.

Yet many believe that it’s these industries that hold the key both to economic recovery and for wider public good in addressing inequity, promoting social inclusion, fostering cultural diversity and advancing sustainable development.

To realise these opportunities, the search is on for more adaptable, resilient and collaborative approaches to building and sustaining cultural and creative ecosystems.

Culture Summit Abu Dhabi 2021, a leading global forum, which explores creative cultural solutions to the most pressing issues affecting the world today, aims to explore the challenges and opportunities associated with building these ecosystems and the benefits they can deliver around the world.

Taking place virtually from 8 to 10 March, this fourth edition, organised by the Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi, will bring together cultural leaders, practitioners and experts from the fields of art, heritage, museums, media and technology to generate new strategies and identify ways in which culture can transform societies and communities worldwide.

In addition, a curated selection of artist talks, film screenings and performances will take place during the summit. To be part of the discussions, register today for the three day summit and stay tuned for full programme updates.
