Photo Walk | Celebrating Dubai Museum

Celebrate the history of Dubai Museum on this unique photo walk, contribute to the legacy of Dubai Museum Al Fahidi Fort and learn about the efforts that led Dubai to it’s current state of progress and pioneering.

What's Covered

We’re looking for storytellers! In conjunction with Dubai Culture and Gulf Photo Plus, we’re embarking upon a collaborative effort to document the Dubai Museum / Al Fahidi Fort.

 

Al Fahidi Fort is situated at the south of Dubai Creek, at the Souk Al Kabir, which teams with vigorous trade, close to The Ruler’s Court. It was built in 1787, as the premises of the monarch and an important fort for defence, sitting on what was the border of urban Dubai at the time. In 1971 it was opened as an official museum, displaying the history of Dubai and it’s heritage. In 2020 the Dubai Museum “Al Fahidi Fort” is temporarily closed the public for renovation. Dubai Museum’s collection of antiquities, such as pottery and weapons, have found a new, permanent home in the Al Shindagha museum just a short walk away.

 

In celebration of Dubai Museum’s importance within the Al Fahidi fort, we invite you to join us on a photo walk to document the symbolic journey to Al Shindagha and to be part of the present and future legacy of the Museum. Become part of the local neighborhood for a day, as you trace your way through Bur Dubai, hunting for unique environmental shots of details that evoke the story of Dubai.

 

At the end of the photo walk we will share our images with the Dubai Culture & Arts Authority. The best images contributed will form part of Dubai Culture’s Archive of the museum.

 

*Please note that, due to social distancing requirements, we have a limited number of spaces for each walk and cannot guarantee a space. Spaces will be given on a first come, first served basis and succesful applicants will be notified within 72 hours of filling out the appliation form.
