Ms. Karen Pierce, in collaboration with The Institute for Digital Archaeology, the Dubai Future Foundation, and the United Kingdom Mission to the United Nations, hosted a new exhibition, "Old Cities, New Eyes".

The exhibition took a step into the past and present by presenting a better understanding of our diverse cultural heritages and how to better connect them, therefore engaging the bridge to our humanity. This exhibition encompassed over 200 years of developing technology.
