It was announced today that HH Sheikha Latifa bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum would be taking on an exciting and important new role within the cultural sphere: Chairperson of Dubai Culture. 

The daughter of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Mohammed Al Maktoum, Vice President of the UAE and Dubai's ruler, HH Sheikha Latifa previously held the title of Vice Chairman of the government authority. This involved helming projects and organising activities to promote Dubai's culture, heritage and arts on a global scale - acting as patron to events like Sikka Art Fair. It's assumed that the royal will continue with such endeavours as the authority's director.

According to a Dubai Media Office press release, HH Sheikha Latifa said of the appointment: "Assuming the leadership of Dubai Culture at the start of a new chapter in its development is an honour for me. I look forward to implementing a fresh strategy to firmly establish Dubai as a prominent cultural centre and a platform for fostering exceptional creative and cultural accomplishments locally, regionally and globally."
