Qatar Creates has partnered with Katara Cultural Village to offer FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 fans and art and culture enthusiasts preferential access to a variety of events, aimed at celebrating the country’s vibrant cultural offerings.
Qatar Creates has transformed from organising occasional, transient events, to become a year-round national cultural movement, connecting local and international audiences with Qatar’s creative industries, a statement said.
Qatar Creates’ recent transformation was accompanied by the launch of its new One Pass, an online portal that offers a one-stop resource for all of Qatar’s cultural offerings. It provides holders with a myriad of benefits including free admission to museums, discounts at events and performances, restaurants, and local retailers, as well as front-of-line privileges.
Through its collaboration with Qatar Creates, Katara will be offering One Pass holders discounts and offers on its ticketed events and preferential access to free events, including the renowned Katara International Dhow Festival, Katara Art Festival, Al Thuraya Planetarium Shows, Street Child World Cup 2022 Exhibition, and the highly anticipated Qatar National Day Celebration Events, including its entertainment and food and beverage offerings from September 1 to December 31.
“Driven by the goal of positioning Qatar as a global culture and tourism hub that celebrates art, creativity, and innovation, Qatar Creates is at the forefront of cultural efforts year-round. By joining forces with Katara Cultural Village, together we will offer Qatar 2022 World Cup fans an unparalleled experience where football and culture converge. Both Qatar Creates and Katara are committed to enhancing Qatar’s cultural offerings, and showcasing its rich cultural environment, regionally and globally,” Qatar Creates executive director Saad al-Hudaifi said in a statement.
“Katara is the largest and the most multidimensional cultural project of Qatar, and a popular tourist destination. It is a place where people come together to experience the cultures of the world, which acts as a bridge that connects people of all nationalities and backgrounds through culture, art and heritage. Home to beautiful theatres, concert halls, exhibition galleries and cutting-edge facilities, Katara organises thousands of events throughout the year which attract exhibitors and visitors from all over the world,” Katara general manager, Professor Khalid bin Ibrahim al-Sulaiti said.
Qatar Creates curates, promotes, and celebrates the diversity of cultural activities in Qatar, with an unprecedented schedule of high-profile events, exhibitions, live shows, and openings, all geared toward the start of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, and beyond.
