ABU DHABI: From June 13 to July 7, 10 selected CACE students and alumni of Zayed University will participate in the Art contest at Alfa Romeo - Gargash showroom in Dubai at the opening event on June 7. The students will display to the residents their artworks and the visitors of the exhibition can vote for the favourite artwork by June 14.

The two most voted talented students from Dubai and Abu Dhabi will be the winners of the art exhibition contest and, along with a Zayed University tutor, will participate in “The Intercultural Project”: an educational trip to Italy organised and accompanied by the Project Manager Dr Benedetta Paravia between July 2 and July 7. The group will travel in Italy with Alfa Romeo vehicles, sponsoring the travel.

The project received the honour to be directly supported by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai.

The Intercultural Project is composed of an interesting mix of cultural and educational modules; based on site visits, direct exploration and first-hand observation and discussion with specialists in the field. Based in different locations, Rome, Florence, Milan, Arona, and Siena, students will be exposed to different historical and cultural sites and museums.

“The course will expose the students to places they otherwise will not experience.

“It will broaden their perspectives, and provide them with an insight into a rich intermix of Italian culture, heritage, history, science, art, architecture and design.

The trip allows students to bond and interact, creating an insightful atmosphere of learning, through observing and discussing. The experience of participating in this well-crafted intercultural trip to Italy will inevitably have a major positive impact on these students as they develop to be the future designers and artists based in the UAE.
