The Cultural Office of Her Highness Sheikha Manal bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum has announced the second edition of the ‘Al Ydar’ initiative, in celebration of 100 years since the birth of the late Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan.

The initiative will include a 140-meter long mural, under the ‘Year of Zayed’ theme. The month-long project will be created by 22 female students from the College of Arts and Creative Enterprises at Zayed University in Dubai. This artwork aims to artistically depict the late Sheikh Zayed’s values, including wisdom, respect, sustainability and human development.

The mural will be made up of 6 consecutive parts: the desert, palm trees, the falcon, Ghaf trees, urban development and the sea. Final artwork will be unveiled on 6th August 2018.
