Each day will focus on a different facet of the theme, such as Living Cultural Ecosystems takes on a sectoral perspective; Living in Culture considers people, communities, and futures; while Culture, Identity, Power focuses on diversity.

The extraordinary forum is organised by the Department of Culture and Tourism, Abu Dhabi. In collaboration are global partner organisations, including UNESCO, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and Foundation, Economist Impact, Google, and the Design Museum, among other art, technology, and media organisations from around the world.
