Highlighting the details, Al Musallam announced the identity of the institute and its objectives, which aim at preserving Emirati and Arab cultural heritage and protecting it from being forgotten.
“Since the opening of our office in December 2014, we used the government logo on the directives of His Highness Dr Sheikh Sultan Bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah. We have now unveiled our own unique logo, vision and other exclusive vision,” he said, while talking to The Gulf Today after the press conference.
He said that “setting up the new identity completes the journey of transforming into an all new look. The institute is working locally and at the international level to support heritage, preserve it, confirm its existence, participate in spreading the conservation of its tangible and intangible collections, and fix the rules of its care taking.”
Al Musallam added that the new identity will be accompanied by further efforts towards the promotion of work so as to enable the SIH to play its role and participate actively in the service of the heritage, its protection, and its reinforcement in the spirits of the citizens.
SIH was inaugurated in December, 2014, in accordance with the Emiri Decree No.70 in 2014 in order to set up cultural and scientific radiation in Sharjah and the Arab world.
It seeks to realise the significant role in all the fields of the cultural heritage and in all its practical and theoretical aspects.
“The objectives of the SIH are summarised in preparing Emirati and Arab cadres of researchers and specialists who value fieldwork and are anxious to maintain cultural heritage, in addition to strengthening the scientific and cultural relations with the institutes and the foundations of heritage all over the world. SIH will give scholarships to students to complete their degrees and diplomas in the field of preserving heritage,” Al Musallam said.
