The 27th Future Generation Cultural Festival was inaugurated by Kuwait’s National Council for Culture, Arts and Letters (NCCAL). The cultural event, to last until March 31, includes a number of children theatrical shows, as well as, fine art and reading workshops.
The festival will highlight Kuwait’s civilised and cultural role in sponsoring future generations.
This year’s festival is filled with cultural and artistic activities, noted the Council’s Secretary-General, Eng. Ali Al-Youha.
The opening ceremony was followed by the Khalifa Al-Qattan’s 10th Formative Art Workshop for children and youngsters, themed “Youngsters’ Creativities in Islamic Arts” and will last until Mar 26.
It is a drawing contest for children, which aims at encouraging them to improve and refine their artistic talents and creativities through formative drawing and painting.
The festival also saw the launch of an interactive gallery entitled “Faith Sprouts Train” held in cooperation with “Faith Sprouts” magazine of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs Ministry.
The festival coincides with Kuwait’s celebration as the Capital for Islamic Culture 2016, Al-Youha said in his opening speech, on behalf of NCCAL’s President, Sheikh Salman Sabah Al-Salem Al-Sabah.
The festival has become a distinctive cultural landmark at the Council, especially since it carries an important strategy in the development of children’s conscience, through various cultural actions, NCCAL’s Assistant Secretary General for the Culture Sector, Mohammad Al-Asousi stated to KUNA.
