In November 2019, Dubai announced the formation of a specialized advisory committee for the performing arts industry, the Dubai Performing Arts Advisory Committee. The committee acts as a communication channel between the various institutions involved in the performing arts and the theater sectors as well as working on a 10-year plan titled: "Future Theater Map". This plan will include proposed accelerators focused on activities needed by the community, including the development and promotion of talent through talent incubators. It will prepare a study to assess the status of the theater sector in Dubai as well as making future development recommendations.
The committee will support the sustainable development of the performing arts industry and contribute to the promotion of the values of performing arts in government and private sectors. By actively encouraging investment in performing arts and strengthening strategic cooperation with cultural and art organizations concerned with the performing arts both nationally and internationally, it will enhance the contribution of theatre towards the creative economy.
The Advisory Committee has recently been established and results will become evident in the next reporting cycle.
