Sheikha Al Mayassa, mecenate di artisti, cantastorie e registi in Qatar, spiega come arte e cultura creino un’identità nazionale, permettendo ad ogni paese di condividere la propria identità con il mondo. Lei sostiene che: “Non vogliamo essere tutti uguali, ma vogliamo capirci a vicenda”
Sheikha Al Mayassa
As chairperson of the Qatar Museums Authority (QMA), Her Excellency Sheikha Al Mayassa bint Hamad bin Khalifa Al-Thani uses the rich history of her country to drive education and cross-cultural interaction today. The QMA’s flagship project is the Museum of Islamic Art, an institution built to serve as the world’s center for education and information on art in the Muslim world. According to H.E. Sheikha Al Mayassa’s vision, the museum will not only preserve and document the vast diversity of Islamic art, but also provide a welcoming place for the international community to learn more about an often-oversimplified culture.
