Dubai Culture & Arts Authority is the custodian of Dubai’s cultural and creative sector. Under the leadership of Her Highness Sheikha Latifa bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Chairperson of Dubai Culture, the Authority is committed to enriching Dubai’s cultural scene based on the UAE’s heritage and is building bridges of constructive dialogue between various cultures to enhance Dubai’s position as a global centre for culture, an incubator for creativity, and a thriving hub for talent.



The Authority is committed to preserving and celebrating Dubai’s history and highlighting its contemporary cultural and creative fabric through a series of mega cultural initiatives, events and projects, and the various cultural and heritage assets under its remit, including the management of 6 historical destinations, 6 museums, Al Jalila Cultural Centre for Children and 8 Dubai Public Libraries.

The theme of the 10th edition of Sikka Art and Design Festival is inspired by the Sidr tree, which is characterised by firmness and strength and is closely related to the historical heritage of the UAE’s civilisation. The Sidr tree is a national symbol firmly rooted in the UAE’s culture and heritage, in addition to its association with the value of giving. The tree and its broad shadow have always been a part of the national folk tales and songs. This iconic tree from ancient times has been used by poets and scholars in their creations from artistic to scientific and legal.
