In continuation of celebrations marking Europe Day on 9 May by the European Union (EU) member-states, a cultural display titled ‘EU Cultural Heritage Exhibition’ was held at the Avenues Mall from 9 to 15 May.

The exhibition, organized as part of the first Bulgarian Presidency of the Council of the EU, and in promotion of 2018 as the European Year of Cultural Heritage, presented 40 unique photographs of UNESCO World Cultural and Natural Heritage sites in the EU member-states.

Some of the photographs displayed at the EU Cultural Heritage Exhibition were provided by the EU Commission and the rest were provided by the various European embassies accredited to Kuwait.

The opening ceremony of the ‘EU Cultural Heritage Exhibition’ witnessed the attendance of all European ambassadors accredited to Kuwait. The ambassadors were also on hand to interact with visitors and answer questions posed to them on various topics. The exhibition highlighted the importance of having more frequent proactive public diplomacy events organized by the EU, rather than just by individual member states.

The celebrations marking Europe Day, which was held for the first time in Kuwait, had earlier witnessed the staging of a concert  titled ‘European Days – United in Diversity’ by the Embassy of the Czech Republic in Kuwait on 28 April, in collaboration with National Council for Culture, Arts and Letters (NCCAL) and the Ministry of Defense. In addition, a classical music concert with musical works from Bulgaria was held at the Gulf University for Science and Technology on 5 May. 

At the closing of the EU Cultural Heritage Exhibition, the Bulgarian Presidency presented mementos to its Kuwaiti partners as a symbol of gratitude for their participation and support in making Europe Day a grand success in Kuwait.
