Abu Dhabi launches ’Special Summer’ activities

Abu Dhabi launched its ’Special Summer’ actives programme with a number of lessons on the UAE heritage. The activities, a join initiative between the Abu Dhabi Authority for Culture and Heritage (ADACH) and Abu Dhabi Education, focus on themes such as the achievements of Sheikh Zayed the Great and heritage sites in the UAE. The lessons are presented by Ali Al Tamimi, lecturer and artist; Moussa El Houari, researcher at the Department of Intangible Heritage at ADACH; Mubarak Beteesh, archaeology expert at the Department of Historic Environment at ADACH. The activities, which will continue until the end of June, are held in a number of schools and educational centres, including Batin Centre, Al Dana, Suqour Centre, Um Ammar School, Cultural Compound, Talents and Creativity Centre, Al Ain Palace Museum, Jahili Fort in Al Ain City. "These activities come to continue the success the programme achieved last year," said Abdullah Al Qubaisi, Director of the Department of Communication at ADACH. "This year, it will include many purposeful heritage events aimed at raising the awareness of students of different ages. It seeks to create an environment of knowledge that is entertaining and attractive to them," he explained. "It should develop their creative side and train them on how to invest their free time during the summer with fun and interest," he added. The event comes as follow-up to the successful centenary celebrations of the late Sheikh Zayed the Great, which highlighted his significant accomplishments, in a bid to introduce students to the history and heritage of Abu Dhabi and United Arab Emirates.
