Thousands of #MyDubai images to appear on social wall
Time Out Dubai staff
To celebrate the first year of the #MyDubai initiative, thousands of residents and visitors who have contributed their pictures of life in the city will have their photographs and videos shared on a giant LED screen in front of The Dubai Fountain, as well as in 300 elevators across the emirate.
The giant exhibition will last throughout January, and in February the screen will become a live social wall, showcasing images and stories in near real-time.
#MyDubai was launched by His Highness Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, on January 5 last year, inviting people to share their experiences of Dubai in a bid to create ‘the world’s first autobiography of a city’. During the first year, more than 2.5 million images and videos were shared with the hashtag, of which more than 1,650 are now on display.
