Global Village unveils one of the UAE’s largest ever community engagement initiatives

Nov 27 2017

Global Village is set to launch one of the UAE’s largest ever community engagement initiatives, the Victory Project, during the 46th UAE National Day celebrations. The initiative was specifically designed to instil patriotism among the students of the UAE and has seen a tremendous response.

The Victory Project is a Global Village community initiative that registered the participation of 15,000 students from 111 schools from across the UAE. The students were encouraged to paint and decorate sculptures that depict the three-fingered UAE victory salute with the UAE National Day theme in mind. More than 3,000 sculptures have been collected from the students and evaluations of the winners have been completed to be announced during the UAE National Day celebrations at Global Village.

Global Village launched the Victory Project community initiative in early October 2017 to involve school students and showcase their artistic talents. The initiative revolves around the artistic and creative expression of students on ceramic tiles that are designed in the form of the victory salute of the three fingers. Each sculpture was painted by a group of 5 students in ways and colours inspired by the values of the UAE National Day.

A special jury evaluated the sculptures and selected the three most beautiful works of art, in accordance with the criteria of linking the idea to the theme of the UAE National Day, and keeping in mind the aesthetics of the presentation. The three winning works will receive prizes up to AED 100,000, awarded to the schools for the development of the art department. Students who created the 10 most beautiful templates will also receive a collection of Global Village Memorial Gifts. All students participating in the initiative will be honoured with certificates of appreciation.

Special events and highly anticipated cultural entertainment have been planned to commemorate the 46th UAE National Day, between December 1-5, 2017 with a special extension of operation hours from 4 pm until 2 am. All celebrations and events for UAE National Day activities at Global Village are included in the ticket price of AED 15.
