Qasr Al Watan welcomed more than 100 senior Emirati Women
In line with Emirati Women’s Day, Qasr Al Watan welcomed senior Emirati women for a journey through UAE’s heritage, legacy and future. This was in collaboration with the Family Development Foundation, General Women’s Union and Emirates Heritage Club.
Emirati women have always played an integral role in the UAE’s journey to success. On Emirati Women’s Day, Qasr Al Watan sought to extend a gesture of appreciation to the Emirati women who have trailblazed the way for the generations of today and beyond.
Showing them a glimpse of the legacy they took part in building and offering them a tour into the history, traditions and inspiring national journey of the UAE.
The tour took the Palace’s special visitors on an enriching journey into the vast collection of cultural artefacts, art and rare manuscripts that it houses.
They were able to look into the UAE’s system of governance and the nation’s founding fathers through the Palace’s exhibits and had exclusive access to rooms that were once reserved for foreign dignitaries.
The tour also gave them a deeper understanding of Qasr Al Watan’s artistry. They observed how traditional Arabian art and Islamic geometrical patterns have been infused as an integral aspect of the Palace’s design.
Personalized cards were designed for the ladies with their names written to commemorate their day at the Palace by an Arabic calligrapher.
