World Cities Culture Forum

World Cities Culture Forum to be held in Dubai

Dubai will host the World Cities Culture Forum from 30 October to 1 November 2024. This will be the first time, since the event’s inception, that it will be held in the MENA region.

The announcement was made during the summit in São Paulo, Brazil, which was held from 25 to 27 October 2023. A delegation from the Dubai Culture and Arts Authority (Dubai Culture) attended the summit.

The Chairperson of Dubai Culture confirmed that hosting this important summit is a testament to the visionary aspirations of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to turn the emirate into a global centre of culture, an incubator of creativity and a thriving hub of talent. It also emphasises Dubai’s ability to bring together cultural leaders from around the world to shape the future of cities and develop visionary cultural policies.

The World Cities Culture Forum is a three-day annual gathering of WCCF member cities, offering a platform to share innovative ideas and best practices in cultural policy development.

The Culture Forum was founded in 2012 by the Mayor of London in the run-up to the Olympic Games. At the time, the Forum comprised eight cities from different countries. Over the last decade, the network has grown to 40 cities around the world, covering six continents and more than 172 million people.

The forum provides an opportunity for representatives from these cities to share research and development and explore the vital role culture plays in their future prosperity.
