DUBAI: South African comedian and TV host Trevor Noah is set to speak at the fifth edition of the Culture Summit in the UAE.
The Emmy award-winning host will take part in a keynote conversation on May 16, which will follow the event’s theme, “A Living Culture.”
Unlike last year’s virtual forum, this year’s summit — organized by the Department of Culture and Tourism in Abu Dhabi — is an in-person event open to the public by invitation only in Manarat Al-Saadiyat.
It brings together pioneers of art, media, technology, and culture from more than 90 countries to generate new strategies, and identify ways in which culture can transform societies, as well as communities.
The three-day event will examine modern issues causing changes in world culture and creative industries, including the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic.
