Eighteen Qatar Museums (QM) employees celebrated success on Sunday for becoming the third round of graduates to complete Qreation Generation 3 – a high-level professional development programme designed to shape the future arts and cultural leaders of QM, Qatar and the region.

The graduation ceremony, which was held at Doha’s iconic Museum of Islamic Art, celebrated the extraordinary achievements of QM staff during this intensive eight-month long programme. The event was attended by QM Chairperson H.E. Sheikha Al Mayassa bint Hamad bin Khalifa al Thani, Special Advisor to the Chairperson and Acting CEO, Mr. Mansoor bin Ebrahim Al Mahmoud, and other senior representatives of Qatar Museums.

The latest Qreation Generation 3 programme involved employees from departments across QM, including the National Museum of Qatar, Mathaf Arab Museum of Modern Art, the Orientalist Museum, Archaeology, Marketing and Finance. During the ceremony, the graduates, 13 of whom were Qatari, were awarded two certificates: one by the Center for Creative Leadership, a renowned global provider of leadership development, and a separate diploma from Qatar Museums.

H.E. Sheikha Al Mayassa Bint Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, Qatar Museums’ Chairperson, said:

“I would like to congratulate every single one of our talented employees that completed this esteemed course with us. Qatar Museums is a destination employer for everyone wishing to work in the creative industries, and our future success requires new generations of leaders with ambitious, bold ideas as well as the commitment and energy to help realise our country’s potential. These successful and thriving arts, heritage and museum professionals are critical to helping us achieve our vision of promoting and sustaining the cultural sector to the highest standards.”

Qreation Generation is a programme that was initiated by H.E. Sheikha Al Mayassa bint Hamad al Thani in 2013 and is overseen by QM’s Department of Education. The Master’s level programme, which is held every year, covers Management of Cultural Institutions and Leadership Studies curriculum, custom-tailored for QM. The program was created in consultation with international experts Goldsmiths University, London and The Center for Creative Leadership from Brussels. The programme covers arts management lectures, discussions, hands-on workshops and case studies covering key issues facing cultural institutions today. Furthermore, leadership workshops, consisting of individual work with leadership experts, advance one’s self-awareness, while group discussions and debates probe into the essence of leadership efficiency. The two programmes complement each other, revolving around and addressing specific challenges and projects of QM.
