Work begins on project to document all aspects of Saudi art and culture across the Kingdom

Author: Wed, 2020-02-26 00:39 RIYADH: Work has started on an ambitious initiative to document all aspects of Saudi culture across the Kingdom’s 13 regions. With its “13/16” project, the Ministry of Culture aims to highlight the nation’s cultural diversity and rich heritage by constructing a record of all forms of local art and culture. The project, which includes the establishment of a visual library of cultural activity recorded in photographs and videos, is believed to be the first of its kind in the Kingdom in terms of exhaustiveness and diversity. Teams of researchers familiar with 16 identified aspects of Saudi culture will visit all 13 regions — hence the name of the project — to photograph and film artists and creators and their work. The art forms and cultural activities in each distinct society that will be documented include theater, music, film, performing arts, literature, visual arts, architectural design, heritage and language. The ministry has drawn up a year-long research plan covering all Saudi regions. It will begin in Riyadh region and end in the Eastern Province, passing through Jizan, Makkah, Al-Jawf, the Northern Borders, Qassim, Hail, Asir, Al-Baha, Najran and Madinah along the way.   Main category: Saudi ArabiaTags: Saudi ArabiaSaudi ArtSaudi culture Hussain Hanbazazah, director of the King Abdul Aziz Center for World Culture (Ithra)Saudi Minister of Culture signs MOUs with leading media organizations

Saudi Arabia fully committed to protecting human rights

Mon, 2020-02-24 23:42 GENEVA: Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan has said the Kingdom is committed to the promotion and protection of human rights at all levels and it is keen to cooperate with international organizations in this regard. Speaking at the 43rd session of the Human Rights Council in Geneva on Monday, the foreign minister called for the protection of the basic human rights of the Palestinians and condemned the gross violations of rights and abuses committed against Rohingya Muslims. He called on the UN and other rights organizations to take effective measures to address these issues. Condemning all forces promoting the ideology of hatred, Prince Faisal highlighted the Kingdom’s efforts in fighting extremism and terrorism. He also called on the international community to pay close attention to some media platforms that are spreading hatred and promoting deviant ideas in the garb of freedom of expression and putting the security of states and communities at risk. The foreign minister stressed the need to respect other cultures and religions to ensure a culture of tolerance around the world. He reiterated Saudi Arabia’s firm position on Yemen and its support to its people and its legitimate government against the Iranian-backed Houthi terrorists. Prince Faisal called for a political solution to the Yemen issue. He urged the international community and civil society organizations to play their due roles in the resolution of the Yemen issue in the greater interest of its people. HIGHLIGHT The international community should pay close attention to some media platforms that are spreading hatred. The foreign minister also highlighted the Kingdom’s role in resolving disputes between countries, especially in the region. He lamented that some countries in the region are bent on destabilizing the Middle East by interfering in other countries’ internal matters and forging divisions. Prince Faisal also highlighted several revolutionary steps the Kingdom has taken to ensure women’s empowerment and to protect human rights. Since the announcement of Vision 2030, the Kingdom has introduced several laws to strengthen the legal framework for the protection of rights, he said. Prince Faisal pointed out that the Kingdom will preside over the works of the Group of Twenty (G20) Summit 2020 under the slogan “Realizing Opportunities of the 21st Century for All,” adding that “the group will focus on three key aims: Empowering People through creating the conditions in which all people — particularly women and youth — can live, work and thrive; safeguarding the planet through fostering collective efforts to safeguard our global commons; shaping new frontiers by adopting long-term and bold strategies to utilize and share the benefits of innovation.” Main category: Saudi ArabiaTags: United Nations (UN) Saudi human-rights chief meets delegation from FranceSaudi human rights chief: Electronic link project to help fight human trafficking

Startup of the Week: Ohayou — a place to enjoy good food and different art forms

Mon, 2020-02-24 23:46 Owned by four Saudi sisters, Ohayou (meaning “good morning” in Japanese) aims to offer a platform to local artists where they can showcase their talents in a comfortable environment and people can also enjoy food while appreciating the skills of local photographers, filmmakers, painters, dancers and chefs. It is said cooking is also an art and these Saudi sisters have combined different art forms with cooking to come up with this novel idea in the Kingdom. “The main entrance to the restaurant has a big wall art, which done by me,” said Nada Salamah, one of the co-founders of Ohayou. Each of the sisters plays a different role in the restaurant in shifts. “One greets and seats the guests; another takes orders and looks after customers’ needs. One manages the flow of customers (and services) and ensures everything is going into the kitchen and out in order. Lastly, you will find one in the kitchen cooking and playing with dishes, and double checking every dish before it is presented,” Salamah said. Salamah, who is the chef of the restaurant, has had a passion for cooking and painting since her childhood. “I’m a huge breakfast lover! I used to wake up at 7:30 a.m. just to enjoy my breakfast meal in time,” she said. Salamah used to work at a firm where creativity and thinking outside the box was never an option. “One day, I was sitting in my cubicle searching images about restaurants and when the idea (of opening a restaurant) struck me. Instead of looking at nice photos why not make one of my own! Why don’t I quit and start something I am passionate about. So I started brainstorming and doing sketches. I took time off each day and visited different sites and started comparing prices. When I got everything figured out, I quit (my job),” she said. “When I finally found a good spot for Ohayou, I started visualizing the design and menu,” she added. With fresh ingredients and an eye-popping variety of dishes, Salamah said Ohayou’s bestsellers are its Manakeesh with homemade pesto, zaatar, and mozzarella cheese. The classic French toast, with crusted homemade brioche bread, maple syrup and barriers are for those with a sweet tooth. There are many other delicacies on offer at the restaurant including sweet potato croquette, slow-roasted brisket, poached eggs and chipotle hollandaise. Salamah pointed out that she opened Ohayou five months ago. “It is doing well.  A few hiccups here and there but all can be handled. There is always room for improvement and that’s why we really care about our customer’s feedback,” she said. Salamah, however, faced some challenges since the opening of her restaurant. “Every challenge makes you grow stronger and you truly learn from every single mistake you make. It’s an ongoing process,” said Salamah.  “I am obsessed with anything Japanese so Ohayou was a perfect name for me,” she said. “The food is mainly breakfast and Japanese-infused dishes are going to be on the menu, so stay tuned,” she added.

Hussain Hanbazazah, director of the King Abdul Aziz Center for World Culture (Ithra)

Tue, 2020-02-25 00:11 Hussain Hanbazazah has been the director of the King Abdul Aziz Center for World Culture (Ithra), which was developed by Saudi Aramco, since December 2019. Prior to that, he was the center’s director of media relations. In 2007, he gained a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from the University of Missouri in Columbia and while studying there was a member of the International Student Organization. He went on to obtain a master’s degree in sustainable electrical energy from the Georgia Institute of Technology, in 2015. He joined Saudi Aramco in February 2008 as an electrical engineer and rose through the ranks to become a project support general supervisor, the job he held when he left the company in 2017 to become a director at the Saudi Center for International Strategic Partnerships (SCISP). There, he was quickly promoted to the position of vice president. In 2018, he moved back to Saudi Aramco as director of media relations before taking up his latest role. Hanbazazah took part in last week’s launch of Ithra’s planned program of events for the year ahead. “The start of this decade is particularly exciting for Ithra as we gear up to deliver a great slate of new programs and events in 2020 for our audiences. “We are pleased to bring back favorites like our annual Tanween festival, in addition to new enriching programming as well as our other popular seasonal events,” he said.

Saudi Arabia’s Eastern Province feels very American, says US consul general

Author: Tue, 2020-02-25 00:28 DAMMAM: The US consul general in Dhahran, Rachna Korhonen, lists the Kingdom as one of her favorite places and is in love with the local culture and traditions. Working in the Kingdom since 2017, she has been impressed by the tremendous changes taking place in Saudi Arabia under Vision 2030. Arab News caught up with Korhonen to discuss all things American and Saudi. “As US Ambassador Abizaid has said, the US-Saudi partnership is more vital than ever, particularly as we confront regional security challenges and work hand-in-hand to achieve shared economic and political objectives.” This relationship is strong and multifaceted, she said, adding: “We work together every day to promote prosperity and economic development, protect the security of our two countries, and build the people-to-people ties that keep our relationship strong.” She said that a posting to Saudi Arabia was her first choice for an assignment. “I did not know at the time that I would be the first woman to serve as the US consul general in Dhahran. I really wanted to learn about energy! I was pretty nervous and somewhat scared, but also excited and enthusiastic. I spent three years in Riyadh and some time in Kuwait and Iraq so I had a pretty good understanding of the region.” Korhonen speaks highly of the Saudi hospitality and the way people welcomed her. “I came (to the Kingdom) just before Eid Al-Adha. It is a tradition that the consul general makes Eid calls to visit prominent families. I was lucky enough to meet people from the very first moment I arrived. I have always made an effort to get to meet people at different occasions. Saudis have welcomed me into their homes, shared meals and traditions with me. I really have the best job in the best place at the best time,” she told Arab News. Saudis have welcomed me into their homes, shared meals and traditions with me. Rachna Korhonen, US consul general Korhonen said she finds the diwaniya and majlis culture of the Eastern Province fascinating. “I enjoy meeting new people and learning about what is happening in the Eastern Province. Diwaniyas are a great place to do that. I also love gahwa (Arabic coffee) and dates,” she said. Korhonen said the Eastern Province feels very American to her. She thinks this is partly due to the close relationship enjoyed by the countries since the 1930s, which began with Aramco and also because thousands of Saudis from the Eastern Province have studied in the US. Commenting on the social transformation in the Kingdom under Vision 2030, she said: “I still remember very well the first game I attended in Saudi Arabia. It was a very hot and humid day in August, but I wanted to be in attendance to show support for the Eastern Province teams. There was a big crowd and the energy in the stadium was amazing. At that game, I was the only woman in the family section. Now, it completely feels normal to see entire Saudi families in the stands. I could be anywhere in the world at a sporting event. It’s such a huge change.” She told Arab News that “there have been no recent changes” in the US visa process, adding: “We have visa appointments most weeks from Sunday to Thursday. We encourage everyone interested in going to the US this summer to start thinking about applying now, since we expect demand will grow as we approach the summer season. “We continue to look for ways to reduce the amount of time a person spends in our waiting room, the wait for visa appointments (especially for students), and the time it takes for someone to get their passport back with the visa.” She said her favorite initiative that brings Saudis and Americans together is the International Leadership Program. “The consulate also works with local Saudi partners to bring American athletes, musicians, entrepreneurs, artists and other experts to the Eastern Province to exchange ideas and explore ways to collaborate. Our EducationUSA office helps Saudi students who are interested in studying in the US learn about US universities, the admission process and how to prepare for their educational experience,” the consul general said.

That includes making sure they get enough power and that it reaches them on time.” Such rumors were mostly started by anonymous accounts, he added.
