‘The Freedom to Ask‘ on UAE National Day
The Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding opened its doors to the public on UAE National day for free tours of the Bastikiya, Cultural Lunch and Breakfast. Guest were excited to be able to interact with local Emiratis and learn about the great pride they have for being a part of the culture and traditions of the UAE. It was also in part the launch of the “Freedom to Ask” program where no question about Emirati Life is off limits. For most guests, it was their first visit to the centre, and many commented that it was the first time they had spoken to an Emirati.
