The National Council for Culture, Arts and Letters (NCCAL) is set to establish a community cultural center in the governorate of Al-Ahmadi at a cost of KD 70 million, said secretary general of NCCAL Ali Al-Yoha on Wednesday.
The center, when soon constructed, will boast among its variety of amenities a museum displaying its artifacts and relics in a state-of-the-art approach involving interactive presentation that should dazzle the visitor, Al-Yoha told KUNA. He revealed that NCCAL is also planning to establish two more such centers to be named Abdullah Al-Salem cultural center and Jaber Al-Ahmad cultural center. These two should see the light in a few years' time, he said.
More museums are urgently needed at this time as there are vast numbers of artistic pieces (more than 1600) that need to be housed and cared for and displayed appropriately for the public, he said.
Within the next four years, the public should expect seeing numerous art galleries, theaters, and music concert halls, he promised. On a different note, he said NCCAL was putting the last touches on the upcoming event celebrating Kuwait as the 2016 capital of Islamic culture, whose list of activities will be announced at the start of next month.
