Digital programmes launched by Sharjah Museums Authority

SHARJAH, August 11, 2020

Digital programmes that target families, people with disabilities, and community members of all ages have been launched by Sharjah Museums Authority (SMA).
The programmes include lectures and engaging workshops that stimulate curiosity and creativity such as stone art, printmaking, wonders of science and electromechanical drilling on stone
SMA’s series of digital programmes kicked off on July 6 with “Human and Mars”, a lecture that revealed scientists’ interests in Mars and highlighted the Hope Probe and UAE’s astronomical ambitions.
Covid-19 enforced changes to customs and traditions, and to wedding customs and family gatherings in particular, were the focus of the “Social Customs and Traditions during Covid-19 Epidemic” lecture last July. 
Other creative workshops being hosted via Zoom this August include ‘The Solar Oven’, ‘Tower Decorations’ and ‘Colour Blending on Wood’, where participants will be encouraged to take inspiration from objects at Sharjah Museums to create unique artworks. 
Manal Ataya, Director General of SMA said the move comes in response to the growing demand on online events noting that the authority provides people with what they need by launching virtual events and a series of webinars that helps keep the audience engaged to the stories behind collections.
A list of all digital programmes can be found on SMA’s website and social media handles. - TradeArabia News Service
