It all started with a vision.


A vision that shaped our 90-year legacy of education, community, and engineering excellence.


For Aramco, being a good corporate citizen means mobilizing our capabilities and allocating our resources to make a tangible and positive difference in people’s lives.


Of course, Saudi Arabia has a rich culture, and part of Ithra’s rule is to exchange culture with the rest of the world. 


Its hallways are an archive of our past, a testament to our present, and a launching pad for our future.


Through our flagship initiative, the King Abdulaziz Center for World Culture (Ithra), we aim to inspire a passion for knowledge, creativity, and innovation. 


Through our programs, Ithra aims to bridge communities by preserving centuries of heritage, memories, and wisdom passed down across generations to spread ideas, curiosity, and creativity.


Its library, theater, workshops, exhibits, educational programs, and more aim to unlock people’s skills with attractions focused on a variety of subjects ranging from art to science to empower a knowledge-based society.


Today, Ithra is a hall mark of innovation and culture embodying our vision to accelerate human potential and inspire generations that will shape our ever-evolving world.
