Qatar Museums (QM) has urged students and teachers to register for its new Culture Pass tiers, offering a curated programme and benefits that suit their passion.
While QM opened a number of its museums and heritage sites on July 1, the first day of the second phase of the gradual lifting of Covid-19 restrictions in the country, students and teachers can also take part in these creative online programming by registering via https://www.qm.org.qa/en/culturepass.
“Culture Pass is your gateway to explore culture, art and heritage. Membership draws together the wealth of experiences we offer at our museums,” QM said on its Instagram page.
The programme, QM noted, includes two new tiers, the Culture Pass Students and Culture Pass Teachers memberships, “designed to create a community, be proactive and share the love of knowledge to future generations by offering them an exclusive and behind the scenes access to tours, talks, and workshops”.
The expanded Culture Pass programme was launched in June as an added support to teachers and students in Qatar, giving them access to QM’s educational services, workshop opportunities and an array of free-of-charge virtual activities.
Teachers will receive unique educational training opportunities, as well as expand their cultural knowledge.
They can join tours, exhibition training tours, local artists’ workshops and the ‘Teachers Teaching Teachers’ programme, and get invitations for the Teachers’ Council and the Executive Teachers’ Council.
QM said teachers, under the new Culture Pass tier, will also enjoy a wide range of discounts at various restaurants and cafes across the country.
These include 10% discount at QM gift shops, IN-Q Online and Cass Art Qatar, as well as QM ticketed exhibitions.
For students 16 to 25 years, the tier gives them access to an array of QM events.
It also allows them to register for development platforms such as the Museum of Islamic Art Infinite Programme, and apply to the QM Internship Programme and volunteering opportunities with the Public Programme’s Team.
Students members stand to benefit from priority registration to student arts workshops and artists talks.
They are also entitled to a 10% discount at QM gift shops.
QM noted that the original free Culture Pass Basic membership, which is “hugely popular” with more than 20,000 members, will remain available for Qatari nationals, residents and visitors, along with core benefits.
