In late March Dubai Ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum unveiled plans to build a cultural district on the banks of emirate’s creek. The Khor Dubai project will stretch 20 kilometres. It will start in the Shindagha area and run through Business Bay to the new creek extension.

It will include 10 museums, nine libraries, 14 theatres, an opera house, 11 galleries, seven arts and culture institutes and workshops for artists (MEED 27:3:08).
