Cementing its role as a patron of cultural vibrancy and heritage preservation in Kuwait
Kuwait, 21 November 2023: Burgan Bank recently concluded its successful sponsorship of Dar Al-Athar Al-Islamiyyah’s (DAI) 8th Fall Festival. The one-day event, which took place at the Amricani and Yarmouk Cultural Centers, saw an impressive turnout of visitors, in addition to the participation of local entrepreneurs, artists, and artisans. Burgan’s renewed sponsorship and support of the Fall Festival comes under the Bank’s all-encompassing social responsibility program and its efforts to preserve and promote Kuwait’s rich heritage and cultural identity.
Commenting on the event’s success, Ms. Hessa Hussain Al-Najadah, Senior Manager – Corporate and CSR Communications at Burgan Bank, said: “We are delighted to be part of such a culturally rich event. As part of our mission to contribute to the growth of our community, we continue to search for and collaborate with impactful entities such as Dar Al-Athar Al-Islamiyyah, who spare no effort in showcasing and celebrating the Kuwaiti culture and its unique heritage. Events such as this Fall Festival are essential for the preservation of our Kuwaiti culture and its evolution into new forms that resonate with the younger generations.”
Similar to the previous editions of the event, Dar Al-Athar Al-Islamiyyah’s 8th Fall Festival marked a great opportunity for artisans and small-business owners as well as the mass public. Throughout the event, local artists and entrepreneurs had the opportunity to exhibit their unique, high-quality products to a wide audience. Meanwhile, the event offered families as well as arts and culture enthusiasts an opportunity to enjoy a diverse range of performances – from live music to theater, storytelling, and more – as well as engaging workshops for children and adults alike.
As part of the Bank’s active role in the event, its dedicated representatives were available on the ground, at the Burgan booth and across the venue, spreading banking awareness and vital financial tips with the crowd, as part of its continued support of the “Let’s Be Aware” (Diraya) campaign, initiated by the Central Bank of Kuwait (CBK) and Kuwait Banking Association (KBA) in partnership with all Kuwaiti banks.
