"The cultural ecosystem of the UAE has progressed exponentially in recent years," he continued. "In what is sure to be a fascinating and illuminating discussion, we will not only gain insights into the artistic practices and inspirations behind some of our most influential creative minds, but discover how those who have helped build the local art scene think we might best move forward to tackle the challenges facing the sector and ensure continued artistic growth in the UAE and beyond."
