We mentioned a couple of weeks ago that the United Arab Emirates are holding their first ever Mother Of The Nation Festival… What we didn’t mention at the time is that WE’RE THERE!
Before we outline a list of the acts we’ve provided over the course of the festival – from 24th March until the 2nd of April, here’s a little refresher about the MOTN festival:
The Mother of the Nation Festival celebrates, commemorates and honours the inspirational values of Her Highness Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak.
Sheikha Fatima Bint Mubarak is the wife of the late Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the founding father of the United Arab Emirates. She has been a pioneer in supporting the efforts exerted towards women’s empowerment and rights.
An ardent supporter and upholder of women empowerment, Sheikha Fatima believes that the empowerment of women is vital to the advancement of society. She has therefore always pursued the causes of women locally, regionally and internationally.
Throughout multiple and diverse activity zones, the festival creates an entertaining and highly interactive atmosphere that welcomes families and individuals from all walks of life.
