On 1st November Sharjah Museums Department (SMD) launches its monthly Cultural Awareness Workshops for adults, which will be held at 10am at Sharjah Heritage Museum. Each month the workshop will take place on the first Saturday of the month (6 December, 3 January, 7 February, etc.) As with all of SMD's learning programmes this workshop is offered free of charge.
This programme was designed after staff in the Academic and Adult Learning Programmes division of the Department of Interpretation and Education carried out an online survey of what people living in the UAE wanted to know about the UAE and its culture. The feedback from this survey has been used by staff to create a bilingual, one and half hour discussion-based workshop for people to learn more about Islamic and UAE culture.
Discussions will centre on the subjects of customs, traditions, dress, marriage, etiquette and much more, and will be led by Emirati staff from the Department of Interpretation and Education. Traditional refreshments will be served following each workshop. We look forward to seeing you there!
