On Monday, April 17, 2023, the Ministry of Culture, represented by the Department of Culture and Arts, will organize a symposium entitled “Creativity and Innovation in Culture”, on the occasion of the International Day for Diversity and Innovation in Culture.
Speakers at the symposium were Ms. Maryam Yassin Al-Hammadi, Director of the Department of Culture and Arts, Ms. Amna Rashid Al-Buainain, Director of the Planning, Quality and Innovation Department at the Ministry of Culture, and Ms. Haifa Abdul Rahman Al-Abdullah, Director of Innovation at Qatar Science and Technology Park. The United Nations General Assembly has previously declared April 21 of each year as the International Day of Innovation and Creativity to raise awareness of the role of creativity and innovation in all aspects of human development, based on the lack of a specific global understanding of the concept of creativity, which makes it a concept open to interpretations, starting with artistic expression and ending with problem-solving skills within the framework of sustainable economic and social development.
