Los Angeles cultural body takes Dubai as sister city

posted on 26/04/2004: 7479 views

The Los Angeles Cultural Affairs Department (LACAD) has chosen Dubai as its cultural sister-city. A US delegation is currently holding talks with local officials to promote cultural exchanges. The cooperation is also aimed at wiping out the stereotypical image of the Gulf.

Margie Johnson Reese, LACAD's General Manager, who is leading the delegation, said, "Dubai is as energetic as Los Angeles. This dynamic emirate, Dubai, is hungry to build, interrelate, accept other civilisations and have open cultural dialogues with others. "There is also a potential for partnerships in different domains such as social, cultural, tourism and trade. We are also here to encourage such exchange and strengthening the ties in order to wipe out the stereotypical thinking. When artists are brought together they establish an everlasting bond between Dubai and LA," she said. She said during her four-day visit, she held talks with members of the Dubai Cultural Council and the Abu Dhabi Cultural Foundation.

"We are looking forward to promoting LA's culture in Dubai. We are also inviting people over to LA to promote Dubai's culture. The people of LA are open-minded and anxious to get acquainted with new and different civilisations." The delegation also met officials at the American University in Dubai (AUD) to explore the possibility of LACAD setting up a representative office at AUD. (The Gulf News)
