Qatar Museums (QM) is pleased to announce that it has brought on three new partners as part of its hugely successful arts and cultural membership programme Culture Pass, which draws together a wealth of cultural experiences on offer across Doha.

The three partners have been announced as:

·       The Doha Film Institute – an independent, not-for-profit cultural organisation which supports the growth of the local film community by enhancing industry knowledge, cultivating film appreciation and contributing to the development of sustainable creative industries in Qatar;

·       Amlak – a wholly owned subsidiary of Qatar Foundation managing business units and providing integrated Asset Management and Operation solutions in the Real Estate and Hospitality & Leisure industries;

·       Nuqat – a non-profit organisation based in Kuwait City that is dedicated to the development of creativity in the Arab world.

Among the many great benefits already on offer, Culture Pass members will now be offered free and discounted tickets all year round to Doha Film Institute events, including its Ajyal Youth Film Festival, regular year-round screenings and Qumra event. Amlak will offer a range of discounts at some of its hotel and restaurants including an extra night’s stay at Al Shaqab Hotel. In addition, Nuqat will offer Culture Pass members discounts on all Nuqat workshops and activities, which include training programs and cultural entertainment in both Arabic and English covering topics in visual, therapeutic, commercial and performing arts in addition to creative entrepreneurship.

Commenting on the new partnerships, Sheikha Nouf Mubarak Saif Ahmed Al Thani, Acting Head of Membership at Qatar Museums, said: “Under the visionary guidance of our chairperson, Her Excellency Sheikha Al Mayassa bint Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, it gives us great pleasure to partner with these three leading organisations in Qatar to give our valued Culture Pass members even more benefits to enjoy. These new partnerships will encourage further cultural exchange and inspire a culture of creativity and innovation across Qatar.”

Under the visionary guidance of its chairperson, Her Excellency Sheikha Al Mayassa bint Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, the Culture Pass programme has successfully established itself in Qatar since it was launched in May 2014, and in February Qatar Museums celebrated welcoming its 10,000th member to this arts and cultural membership programme. The tailored programme offers members the chance to experience exclusive benefits linked to diverse cultural activities across Qatar. Members receive a huge range of benefits including access to workshops that develop creative skills and explore exhibition themes; dedicated newsletters with all the latest on Qatar’s arts and culture scene; opportunities to attend exclusive, VIP exhibition openings; private tours of galleries and discounts of up to 15% at QM cafes, gift shops and selected sites.

Doha Film Institute CEO Fatma Al Remahi said: “We are delighted to partner with Culture Pass alongside other leading cultural organisations in Qatar. Culture Pass allows its users to fully embrace the burgeoning cultural scene in Qatar and all of us at the Doha Film Institute look forward to welcoming Culture Pass holders to our dynamic roster of film events throughout the year.”

The Culture Pass Programme is free of charge and open for all to enjoy. The programme is aligned with Qatar Museums’ vision of enriching the lives of all those who live in and visit Qatar, as well as inspiring an indigenous culture of creativity and innovation.
