Brand Dubai, the creative arm of the Government of Dubai Media Office, has partnered with the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) to launch a project to creatively revitalise parking spaces in key areas of Dubai.

Executed in collaboration with six Emirati and expatriate artists, the project is part of Brand Dubai’s efforts to enhance the creative ambience of public spaces in Dubai and initiate new connections with the community through art.

Around 100 parking meters in Jumeirah, Dubai Media City and Al Mustaqbal Street have been enlivened with 15 artworks inspired by the themes of diversity and tolerance. The Parking Meters project is part of the #DubaiSpeaksToYou initiative, which aims to create unique aesthetic experiences for people as part of converting the city into a canvas for art and creativity.

Emirati artists contributing to the project include Reem Al Marri, Issa Al Noaimi, and Sheikha Fekri. The Dubai-based expatriate artists taking part in the project include Ari Puguh, Dina Sami and Rosanna Lamo-Villanueva.

Brand Dubai, the creative arm of the Government of Dubai Media Office, develops initiatives aimed at enhancing Dubai urban environment to reflect its emergence as one of the world’s most developed, fastest growing and culturally diverse cities.
