The King Abdulaziz Center for World Culture (Ithra) will celebrate the Holy month of Ramadan by presenting a wide selection of cultural events aimed at promoting national traditional values and heritage, as well as discovering timeless skills and crafts through education, hands-on making and innovation within a creative and stimulating environment.
The program features cultural and interactive activities, in addition to various workshops, a collection of cognitive games targeted at various age groups, Ramadan Chapters, and art tours, all which reflect Ithra’s mission to inspire passion, creativity, and communication across cultures.
Ithra presents an exciting journey that takes visitors on a number of Ramadan Chapters featuring artworks that are inspired by the Holy month of Ramadan, allowing them to explore 12 prominent art pieces that were integrated into the architectural design of the building. The tour gives them insight into some of the “secrets of the Center.”
Also, Ithra will present a series of cultural meetings through the “Ithra Cultural Majlis” and the “Pockets of Light” program by Mohammed Al-Saawi, the Ithra Mosque imam.
Furthermore, Ithra’s program will inspire its young visitors by offering innovative programs that will be presented within an educational framework exploring the history of Arabic calligraphy, as well as narrating Garga’an stories coupled with various interactive programs, watching the art of the marbling process, learning Arabic calligraphy, and learning design using Arabic letters hanging from tree branches in different sizes that inspire visitors and build their skills.
