Doha, 14th May 2015

Qatar Museums is pleased to announce that ExxonMobil Qatar will be the official Platinum Sponsor of the Qatar Turkey 2015 Year of Culture. Years of Culture is an annual initiative organised by Qatar Museums that aims to forge new partnerships and exchanges between Qatar and countries around the world through culture, arts & creativity, sport and business. Qatar’s Ministry of Culture, Arts and Heritage and Turkey’s Ministry of Culture and Tourism are co-organisers of Qatar Turkey 2015

Held under the patronage of Qatar Museums’ Chairperson, Her Excellency Sheikha Al Mayassa bint Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, Qatar Turkey 2015 Year of Culture is the fourth consecutive Year of Culture, following Qatar Japan 2012, Qatar UK 2013 and Qatar Brazil 2014. It will celebrate close relations between the State of Qatar and the Republic of Turkey through cultural partnerships between Qatari and Turkish organisations, institutions and individuals.

As sponsor, ExxonMobil Qatar will work closely with Qatar Museums and both Ministries to deliver an exciting and rewarding programme that helps to build long-term relationships between institutions and individuals in both countries.

This year’s programme includes artists’ competitions and residencies, educational exchanges, and world-class Qatari exhibitions in Turkey. These activities bring together Qatari and Turkish individuals and institutions to foster mutual understanding and ensure the robust development of culture, art and heritage in local communities.

Mansoor Al Mahmoud, Acting CEO at Qatar Museums said, “The backing of these major organisations will go a long way towards ensuring that 2015’s Year of Culture is a huge success. We are grateful for their support and commitment in working with us to fulfil the role for art and culture in bridging between nations, connecting people and further encouraging cultural exchange. Over the coming months, we will work closely together to strengthen the existing ties between our two countries.

“Qatar-Turkey 2015 Year of Culture celebrates the rich and diverse cultural relationship of both countries, and we are proud to partner with Qatar Museums as the platinum sponsor of this important initiative,” said Alistair Routledge, President and General Manager for ExxonMobil Qatar. “As a committed partner in Qatar – a role we have proudly and wholeheartedly embraced for over 22 years -- we endeavor to support Qatar in fulfilling the objectives of its National Vision 2030 by providing the energy that fuels human potential and nurtures its already thriving society, while highlighting the country’s position as a world-class center for business and cultural activities.”
