Al-Futtaim Group Real Estate partners with Deira International School to transform hoarding fences into artwork
Al-Futtaim Group Real Estate and Al-Futtaim Education Foundation have partnered to create a new art project to brand the construction fence of the Al Badia Terraces at Deira International School (DIS) in Dubai Festival City.
According to a statement, the project saw DIS students from Year six and Year eight working to transform the hoarding fence into artwork showcasing different interpretations of ‘Creative Ecosystems’, thus highlighting the eco-diversity and the diversity of the students.
The artwork exhibition is made to drive a sense of community within the Dubai Festival City’s Al Badia district and a homage to celebrate the city’s students. Al Badia Terraces was first announced by the developer late in June 2022.
The Year six and Year eight students were assigned a dedicated space to design the fence and show their artistic skills. Students were also encouraged to utilise different forms of media and arts to produce a series of artworks focusing on the theme of ‘Creative Ecosystems’.
The creative project offered an exciting opportunity for the students to collaborate and harness their creative thinking based on their unique perspectives, and promotes teamwork, goal accomplishment within timelines, persistence, and self-confidence, the statement noted.
Samer Zabian, Director of Residential & Commercial Property at Al-Futtaim Group Real Estate commented: “We are excited to showcase the creative artwork done by the students at Deira International School, as we always strive to encourage creativity amongst our students in our schools and build a sense of community at DFC.”
The partnership aims to position Dubai Festival City and the community as a vibrant, holistic destination offering a lifestyle that brings visitors and their families closer together to enjoy entertainment, hospitality, and leisure offerings, one of them now being the new eye-catching fence exhibition and the upcoming Al Badia Terraces.
In line with Dubai Festival City’s goal to invest in establishing community relationships and building innovative communities, the collaboration with Deira International School presents the destination’s residents, and tenants with a new sight-seeing destination, the statement pointed out.
In April 2022, Amana announced the completion of the solar PV powered Al Futtaim Auto Park in Al Ain.
