THE VISION - The story of Glory - from Dec 9, 2015 - Jan 9,2016

It began with the great forward-thinking of the UAE's Founding Fathers, and continues under
the strength, innovation and great minds of the Nation's present Rulers.

This is an exhibition that focuses on and highlights the UAE's achievements throughout the years, putting it on the world map as a nation that moves ahead achieving it’s every dream. It is amongst the foremost countries in the world in terms of achieving success in record time in every aspect of life from health, education, technology, trade, finance, communication and infrastructure, while staying true to its culture and traditions.

From the very beginning the welfare of the people has always been the priority and core value of the leaders, which in turn has earned them the love and respect of their people as well as international recognition.

The photographic images of The Vision exhibition have been brought to Art Couture gallery through Capacity World Media and are a compilation from the collections and archives of the Ministry of Presidential Affairs, The National Archive, Huawei, Union Properties,  and Photographer Imad Alaeddin from Al Bayaan newspaper.

We are honored to bring The Vision to all on the auspicious occasion of the UAE’s 44thNational day.

THE VISION – The Story of Glory (Dec 9 – Jan 9,2016 from10am-10pm daily)
On the 9th of December 2015 this prestigious exhibition was opened by Mr. Ahmed Al Mari the GM of Union properties. It was well attended by a multicultural audience and covered by numerous members of the press and media.
An exceptional and insightful exhibition highlighting the achievements of the UAE in the past, the present and the future through photographic images that will truly amaze you. Starting with the Vision of the The late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan (may God have mercy upon him), the founding father of the United Arab Emirates, the present leaders remain committed to realizing their father’s dreams. While continuing in the footsteps of their fathers, the leaders today have added their own innovative plans, dreams and insights for a greater UAE where they believe that nothing is impossible. This is already visible and the UAE is on its way to achieving beyond this by the grace of God. The rulers have planned and continue to plan and as they work their plans are achieving unparallel progress in every field in record time. From investing in the benefit of the people of the UAE they encourage foreign investments, create free trade zones, raise the standard of tourism, introduce state of the art infrastructure, improve education & information technology, finance, banking & women’s rights among others. They strive for the highest level of perfection possible in every area of growth and the sky seems to be the limit for this great nation of Visionary leaders.
The exhibition is for viewing only and is open to the public free of charge daily from 10am to 10pm at Art Couture at Al Badia Golf Club in the Tee Lounge. The exhibition ends on the 9th of January 2016. For all those living in the UAE or visiting this is an exhibition that is rare and unique with some of the photography not available for viewing elsewhere. This exhibition is produced by the expertise of Capacity World Media and organized together with Art Couture, in cooperation with the National Archive, the Ministry of Presidential Affairs and sponsored by Union Properties and Huawei and with participation also of photographer Imad Alaeddin from Al Bayan. It took a lot of planning and effort for CWM to put it together but from the reaction of the audience and the nostalgia, pride and respect that filled the air on the opening night it proved to be more than worth the joint effort of all involved.
In 2014 began the idea of creating an annual exhibition in honour of the UAE’s National Day. In 2014 the exhibition was titled – Dialogue. Once again it was with the permission and cooperation of the National Archive and the Ministry of Presidential Affairs and was photographs mainly in black and white of the Past & Present rulers of the UAE in dialogues leading to the formation of the UAE as it is today.
In 2015 the annual exhibition continues under the name- The Vision- the Story of Glory. This is a chance to see history in the making and should not be missed. Look out for a continuation of this annual exhibition during UAE National Day 2016
