Dubai Culture boosts music sector
Dubai Culture and Arts Authority has signed a memorandum of understanding with Music Nation Copyrights Management and DGMC Production to support Dubai’s music sector and elevate it to an international level. This contributes to the administration’s efforts to maintain the emirate’s position and global leadership, as well as develop local music and creative competencies.
Dubai Culture will work with these Dubai-based partners to develop the commercial music business in the emirate, sharing knowledge and insights, strengthening relationships and professional communication in the fields of culture, arts and music. Collaboration will be established to ensure that these business entities support the success of these local industries, in addition to creating a dedicated system to benefit from the expertise of Music Nation and DGMC.
Hala Badri, CEO of Dubai Culture, reiterated the importance of strengthening partnerships with the private sector as this positively impacts the development of the cultural and creative industry ecosystem in Dubai, saying: “Dubai Culture is leveraging all its capabilities to modernise the culture and arts sector in the city and increase its weight by developing a set of initiatives aimed at ensuring the sustainability of artists, in addition to attracting talent working in the sector and motivating them to set up their ventures here.”
Badri expressed her delight at the partnership, adding: “Dubai realised early on the importance of the music sector and its ability to highlight the country’s cultural diversity and make it an attractive destination for creative talent. This strengthening of the national experience will ensure the sustainability and viability of this market.” At the same time, she praised the efforts being made to support and qualify local musicians and help them realise their ambitions.
Rasha Khalifa Al Mubarak, chairman of both Music Nation and DGMC, said: “We are proud to have established this public-private partnership with Dubai Culture. Music Nation and DGMC, along with our renowned international partners, will provide state-of-the-art copyright protection, distribution and state-of-the-art recording infrastructure to ignite Dubai’s music economy and establish Dubai as a leading music city. This partnership will provide a platform for creative people to forge sustainable and fulfilling careers in all aspects of the music industry.”
