The Burj Al Arab hotel is to beam images taken as part of an online photographic project across Dubai onto its sail-like main structure.
A picture taken as part of #MyDubai will be on show on the last Thursday of every month.
Initiated by HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, #MyDubai project invites residents and visitors to join in and create “the world’s first autobiography of a city”.
By submitting images and videos and using the hashtag #MyDubai, the participants contribute to demonstrating the identity and culture of the city.
Heinrich Morio, Burj Al Arab’s general manager, said: “We are pleased to join the #MyDubai initiative and increase the awareness of this community engagement platform by exhibiting a selection of the images contributed so far on Burj Al Arab’s sail.”
#MyDubai was launched on 5 January 2014 at Burj Al Arab. On @MyDubai, there have been almost 250,000 posts while the number of Twitter mentions reached nearly 50,000.
