Saudi Arabia, Russia ‘aim to build bridges through culture’

Tue, 2018-10-23 02:35 RIYADH: Russia seeks to extend its close economic ties with Saudi Arabia into the world of arts and culture, a leading Russian businessman writes today in Arab News. The arts are “a source for new jobs and sustained economic growth, and private companies realize this trend is an opportunity,” says Kirill Dmitriev. “Saudi Arabia is one of the countries that identified this trend early. Cultural development is an important part of the Vision 2030 program led by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman,” he writes. The Russian Direct Investment Fund, the sovereign wealth fund of which Dmitriev is chief executive, “believes that culture not only supports economic growth, but also builds bridges between nations, creating an atmosphere of mutual trust.”  As an example, five paintings by the Russian avant-garde artists Wassily Kandinsky and Pavel Filonov are being exhibited at the Future Investment Initiative conference in Riyadh. Such cultural ties “will contribute to the long-term relationship.” Dmitriev writes.

Saudi Arabia and UAE to donate $70 million to support Yemeni teachers

Author: Tue, 2018-10-23 04:32 Dr. Abdullah Al-Rabeeah, general supervisor of the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSRelief) and adviser to the Royal Court, announced on Monday that Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates will each donate $35 million to pay teachers in Yemen, in cooperation with the United Nations and UNICEF. He said that the contributions reflect the concern of the Saudi-led coalition countries about the situation in the country and their desire to alleviate the suffering of the Yemeni people, who have been suffering economic hardship. Many Yemenis, and teachers in particular have not been paid for some time. The donations, with the assistance of UNICEF, will help provide salaries for 135,000 teachers. Al-Rabeeah added that since 2015, coalition countries have donated $17 billion dollars to help the people of Yemen get through the humanitarian and economic crisis in their country. “The Saudi-led coalition stresses the need for concerted international efforts to support the humanitarian and economic situation in Yemen and avoid further deterioration,” he said. “The coalition countries are expecting the new Yemeni government to prioritize economic and humanitarian matters and activate an action plan facilitating the process. The new government should work on enhancing its performance, in accordance with the international efforts to support the people and their living conditions, in order to prevent the deterioration of the humanitarian situation in Yemen, especially in terms of food security and public health.” Al-Rabeeah said the coalition countries lay the blame for the deterioration of the humanitarian and economic situation in Yemen with the Houthi militias and their coup against the legitimate authorities in the country and their rejection of a political solution, as well as their non-compliance with the international resolutions.

Startup of the Week: Jeddah girl goes digital to showcase artwork

Author: Deema Al-KhudairID: 1540240530457166300Tue, 2018-10-23 23:28 JEDDAH: The brainchild of 22-year-old Saudi illustrator Hana Al-Ghamdi, the Hanaamichi Store is an online shop that offers printing solutions for producing posters, small cards, sketchbook covers and T-shirts. “In the future, I am planning to expand the operations and make collections of digital artwork including stickers, pins and files,” Al-Ghamdi said. Her original artwork can be found on oil and watercolor paintings, and clothes that have the artwork printed or painted on by hand. The store made its debut in March at the Artist Alley at Comic Con Jeddah. “Even though it was my last semester in college, I didn’t hesitate,” she said. “I wanted to participate so badly that it took me two months to plan and make artwork for the event. My friends helped me a lot in the beginning, and the responses I received from people at that time meant a lot to me. I had so much fun in the whole process. Now the products are available on Instagram.” The theme of her artwork is mostly aesthetics. Al-Ghamdi uses fashion and models heavily in her work. “My art style is inspired by Korean artists. I love the vibes of their work and I am trying to implement that in mine,” she said. Not only is her artwork tied to traditional methods, but she is also very skilled in digital art. “I use Adobe Photoshop for making artwork and designing it for printing,” she said. Al-Ghamdi is proud of the quality of the materials used in her merchandise. “The products are provided by the printing store itself, except for the papers inside the sketchbooks,” she said. “I buy the paper depending on what I think is most suitable for drawing and ask them to use it.” Her appreciation for art was sparked at the age of 15, and she has been pursuing her artwork for eight years. “When I was 15, one of our art teachers taught us about the importance of art and encouraged all of us. I started creating characters and short stories like the ones in the Japanese anime shows I used to watch. I did not improve much at the beginning, until I started following other amazing artists. I have not stopped learning and practicing since then,” she said. Follow Al-Ghamdi’s Instagram store account (@hanaamichi.store) to check out her products.

King Abdul Aziz Foundation archives around 6,000 interviews with Saudis

Author: ARAB NEWSID: 1540160153049421500Tue, 2018-10-23 01:14 RIYADH: The Oral History Center of the King Abdul Aziz Foundation for Research and Archives (Darah) has archived around 6,000 interviews with Saudi nationals past and present, said the Saudi Press Agency. The Saudi Oral History Center was established in 1997. It was the third of its kind in the world, after the United States and Britain. Darah hosts millions of books, recordings, photographs, maps and manuscripts and is considered the main source of Saudi national history inside the Kingdom, and abroad through the Oral History Center. Darah assigned a number of specialized teams to carry out visits to the Kingdom’s different regions, speak to citizens about their histories, study sources of national history, and document the accounts of those who directly or indirectly contributed to the Kingdom’s history. It conducted audio-visual interviews with many contemporaries and witnesses, and transcribed them, and investigated those stories based on scientific and technical protocols. It did this in cooperation with universities and international centers specializing in oral history, and with national and regional institutions interested in oral history and heritage. Darah sees oral history — a precise account from eyewitnesses, or reported contemporary accounts — as an important resource. Many Western countries place great emphasis on oral histories and have established specialized centers to record and preserve such accounts. The Foundation also considers oral histories a useful tool that can fill gaps left in recorded history, especially regarding personal histories of families. Researching and recording oral histories can also provide the elderly with a sense of value and bring generations closer together.

Author: sarah glubbID: 1540145568888472600Sun, 2018-10-21 20:49 JEDDAH: A joint team of the Saudi Commission for Tourism and Natural Heritage (SCTH) and the Louvre Abu Dhabi Museum continue their final preparations for the inauguration of the “Roads of Arabia: Archaeological Treasures of Saudi Arabia” exhibition at the Louvre Abu Dhabi Museum. The exhibition’s 15th edition will be its biggest. The show will be inaugurated under the patronage of Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al-Nahyan and in the presence of Prince Sultan bin Salman, president of SCTH, on Nov. 7. It will continue until Feb. 16, 2019. The exhibition’s pieces arrived from Riyadh at the Louvre Museum last week, and a joint team from SCTH and the museum will install the pieces in accordance with the museum’s requirements. In addition to the exhibition’s 466 artifacts, some pieces have been added, reflecting a part of the lifestyles in shared cultural heritage in the Arabian Peninsula, especially those related to the desert, horse and camel riding, falconry and other hunting methods in the desert. The exhibition will also include a stand for the shared cultural heritage between the Kingdom and the United Arab Emirates. This exhibition is considered one of the most renowned Saudi exhibitions on a global scale, introducing the Kingdom and the Arabian Peninsula’s cultural heritage to more than five million visitors worldwide. Over the past eight years and specifically since July 13, 2010, the SCTH has presented 14 acclaimed editions of the exhibition in the most famous museums around the world. The exhibition will present more than 460 artifacts from the National Museum in Riyadh and a number of other museums in the Kingdom. The exhibition was first presented at the Louvre Museum in Paris, followed by La Caixa Foundation in Barcelona, then Hermitage Museum in Russia and Pergamon Museum in Berlin before moving to the US, where it was presented at the Sackler Museum in Washington, the Carnegie Museum of Pittsburgh, the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas and the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco. King Salman inaugurated the exhibition at the King Abdulaziz Center for World Culture — affiliated with Aramco — in Dhahran on Dec. 1, 2016, then approved of presenting the exhibition in Asia. The exhibition was presented at the National Museum in the Chinese Capital, Beijing, and the closing ceremony was sponsored by King Salman and President of China, Xi Jinping, on March 16, 2017. The exhibition was then organized at the National Museum in the South Korean Capital, Seoul, then at the Japanese National Museum in the capital Tokyo, in addition to organizing it at the National Museum in Riyadh. The exhibition at the Louvre in Abu Dhabi will be part of exchanging exhibitions and activities between the two brotherly countries that share common history and heritage, in conformity with the UAE’s celebration of the first anniversary of the museum’s opening, and the “Year of Zayed,” which marks 100 years since the birth of the late founding father of the UAE, Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al-Nahyan. Entrance to the exhibition is free with the museum ticket. Visitors can tour the exhibition through a multimedia guide which is available in Arabic, English and French.
