About Us

Embrace Doha

Embrace Doha is a cultural house based in Souq Al Wakra. Our work in Embrace Doha is to showcase Qatari culture and heritage to non-locals who are new to the country and culture. We are a perfect resource for integrating into Qatari society because we take you into a traditional Qatari household and make you a part of the conversation. You get the chance to ask any questions you may have to a local and get their perspective on several issues surrounding Qatar’s zeitgeist.

Heritage, Culture and Accuracy are three words that make up the ethos of Embrace Doha. We are the only licensed cultural consultancy in the country, we make sure that everything is 100% authentic to Qatari culture. We are here to bridge the gap and build common ground between the Qataris and Expat communities We are pioneers in preserving and celebrating Qatari heritage by curating our sessions and workshops with the local community.

The Team

We are an all women team (for now!) comprised of long-term expats who were born and raised in the country led by our founding director Amal Al Shammari.Embrace Doha is an independent initiative that is all about building cross-cultural understanding between Qataris and people new to the culture, as a result our staff represents the diversity that encompasses the country. We are a group of community engagement professionals who specialize in Qatari history and intangible cultural heritage.
