The Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi has launched a comprehensive new digital initiative designed to act as a ‘one-stop’ reference for users to gain instant access to every aspect of cultural life and heritage in Abu Dhabi.

The ‘Abu Dhabi Culture’ portal encompasses a website as the main hub for information, a mobile app for both iOS and Android devices, social media presence on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube, as well as Podcasts on Soundcloud and iTunes which will feature weekly broadcasts of cultural topics and expert discussions.

HE Mohamed Khalifa Al Mubarak, chairman of the department, said: “The Abu Dhabi Culture platform is an important step in our journey to present Abu Dhabi’s rich culture to the world, as it represents our continuous efforts in reinforcing the emirate’s cultural and intellectual presence, as well as contributing to the UAE’s position internationally in the application of technology and digital transformation.”

Designed to bring together every possible aspect of Abu Dhabi’s cultural offering into one place, the platform will feature continuously updated content, fresh new photos and videos, a 360° walkthrough for each cultural location or activity, contact information and an interactive map, a ‘book a visit’ option for individuals, groups and schools, as well as an education kit for multiple locations.
