Sharjah’s Heritage that Never Fades
For the sixth year in a row, Sharjah Museums Authority will commemorate World Heritage Day, which is celebrated on the 18th of April each year around the world. This year, the authority will host a dialogue session and a family programme titled “Sharjah’s Heritage that Never Fades.” The session will highlight the role of Sharjah’s Ruler, His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, in preserving Sharjah’s heritage, which was in danger of being lost, as well as the responsibility of government bodies in preserving and protecting culture and heritage.
The following speakers will join the dialogue session:
– Mr. Ahmed Albairaq – Head of Corporate Communication Department at Sharjah Institute for Heritage
– Ms. Fatima Salem Al Shuaihi – Head of Cultural Guidance Department – Heart of Sharjah – Sharjah Investment and Development Authority “Shurooq”
– Ms. Noura Al Mughni – Curator of Sharjah Heritage Museum – Sharjah Museums Authority
The session, which will take place from 8:00 pm to 10:00 pm, will look at the role of organisations concerned with history, culture, and development, as well as individuals specialising in heritage preservation who have witnessed the emirate’s changes and developments under His Highness’ leadership.
This year’s family programme, which runs from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm, includes a variety of entertaining and educational activities for children as well as a series of workshops for both children and adults that adhere to Sharjah museums’ precautionary and preventive measures.
