Sheikha Al Mayassa: Globalizing the local, localizing the global

Sheikha Al Mayassa, a patron of artists, storytellers and filmmakers in Qatar, talks about how art and culture create a country’s identity — and allow every country to share its unique identity with the wider world. As she says: “We don’t want to be all the same, but we do want to understand each other.”

Sheikha Al Mayassa is the young and progressive force behind Qatar’s mission to become the Middle East’s foremost destination for the arts and culture.
