National Festival of Tolerance 2018 Photography
Tolerance is embedded in the DNA of UAE society. In line with the mission of the Ministry of Tolerance and Coexistence to spread the message of tolerance, the Festival seeks to highlight and encourage its values to all. It aims to achieve this through inclusive public events and outcome-oriented forums. The Festival ran from the 9th to the 16th of November in 2019. The public events provided ample opportunity for everyone to appreciate the values of difference and diversity across cultures, art, music, sport, and other aspects which contribute to the vibrant tapestry of the UAE. The forums, in which participation was by invitation only, facilitated meaningful exchanges among the country’s youth, women, expatriate business leaders, and other distinguished leaders (such as prominent global experts and Nobel laureates) to dialogue.
