On the first day of the programme, a ‘Lights from Hay' workshop was presented by Hind Al Ameri from the Attaba Center. On the following day, Mr. Yousef Al Shehhi introduced the ‘Majlises are Schools' workshop, which highlighted different customs and values ​​in UAE society. The Dubai Women's Association also hosted a workshop, ‘Decoupage on Minerals', while female students from the National Center of the Nad Al Hamr Centre for Cultural Development presented ‘The World of Infographic' workshop and the Dubai Heritage Development Centre's team hosted the ‘My Mother's Plate' workshop.

The second week of the programme featured a further five workshops including ‘The National Basket' presented by Dalal Mohammed on the first day, followed by ‘Al-Beshtakhta' with the Dubai Women's Association on the next day.

The forum concluded with a ‘Carnival Gardens' workshop by Dubai Heritage Development Centre.

Fatima Lootah, Director of the Dubai Heritage Development Centres, commented: 'Dubai Culture is delighted to have hosted this event, which attracted a large number of students who took advantage of their free time during the school holidays to participate in enriching activities. We would like to thank all of the governmental institutions and community centres that helped us to organise the forum and achieve our goals.'

The forum's main objective was to establish and strengthen ethical habits and values, while also demonstrating the Authority's eagerness to encourage students to put their free time toward beneficial and fun activities. Through the workshops, innovative ideas were supported and prizes were presented to the best participants, and each student was awarded a certificate of participation.

Dubai Culture aims to enhance Dubai's cultural scene and draw attention to the Emirate's rich heritage with a variety of initiatives that take place throughout the year.
