Expo 2020 Dubai: Workers' images to be beamed across digital screens
The Workers' Portrait Series will capture the diversity and spirit of the Expo workforce
Expo 2020 Dubai has developed the Workers’ Portrait Series, which features stunning images capturing the diversity and spirit of the Expo workforce, accompanied by their inspiring quotes.
The images will be displayed on the digital screens around the public realm for visitors from around the world.
The series follows a 2017 audio-visual exhibition that showcased workers’ stories of Expo 2020, told in their languages.
A statement issued on Friday said the training was delivered to more than 35,000 frontline workers, 3,000 supervisors, and 2,000 senior leaders and managers, all of whom will be able to take the knowledge they have gained onto subsequent roles.
