Yarmouk Cultural Centre
For more than 30 years, the DAI has been a beacon for culture and education in Kuwait, and now DAI has a new facility, at Yarmouk Cultural Centre. The new centre is the central hub for DAI’s upcoming Cultural Season 21, which will include a wide selection of cultural and artistic events.
Cultural Season 21
“The DAI promotes the fusion of people, cultures and ideas,” said NCCAL Undersecretary Abdulkareem al-Ghadban. “Our exhibitions do that by bringing together objects created by different people, in different places, from different periods and highlighting their shared humanity. This, our 21st Cultural Season features activities that do the same: through lectures, educational opportunities, cinema, theatrical and musical performances, workshops and special events.”
