KUWAIT: Information and Culture Minister and State Minister for Youth Abdulrahman Al-Mutairi said the goal of opening the Kuwait Music House and the permanent art gallery was to raise artistic taste and pave the way for more creative works of art. The event will unleash the potential of Kuwaiti youth in all kinds of art, he said in the inaugural address on Sunday evening at the Museum of Modern Art. “The Maison de la Musique and the gallery will act as an incubator for the arts and artists that promotes talents and culture through a set of interactive projects with the participating public,” the Minister underlined.

The project will serve as a practical way to unleash the creative potential of artists and as a permanent platform to highlight the civilized aspect of the state of Kuwait, Mutairi noted. “This artistic initiative reflects the instructions of His Highness Emir Sheikh Nawaf Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, His Highness Crown Prince Sheikh Mishal Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah and His Highness Prime Minister Sheikh Sabah Khaled Al-Hamad Al-Sabah to promote culture, art and letters in Kuwait, ”he continued.
