Samsung, Saudi Art Council Partner to Support Local Talent
In line with its efforts to empower the Kingdom’s future generation, Samsung Electronics has partnered with the Saudi Art Council to support young artists through a series of events and unique educational programs tailored for students. The partnership aims to encourage local talent and develop their promising potential to expose their artistic abilities.
Samsung sponsored the Saudi Art Council’s (21,39 Jeddah Arts) initiative which stresses on the importance of the Saudi art scene and its national belonging. The initiative comprises diverse exhibitions for contemporary art, in addition to educational workshops and school field visits to help students reveal their craftsmanship.
Ismail Yoon, President of Samsung Electronics KSA said: “Our partnership with the Saudi Art Council is one of many initiatives that fall under Samsung’s role in support of diverse activities across the Kingdom and serves the community as a fundamental pillar towards its development. Samsung continues to exert its efforts and experience in technology to support local talent and equip them with the right tools to show off their artistic skills.”
“The Saudi Art Council (SAC) is committed to developing partnerships with local and international organizations that share our dedication and enthusiasm in supporting our Kingdom's cultural and educational interests through numerous initiatives,” said Hamza Serafi, Council Member at the Saudi Art Council. “SAC's annual 21,39 Educational Program has been developed to stimulate and encourage our youth's interests and skills in the realm of art and expression, and contains a variety of workshops and lectures administered by world-class practitioners and experts. Since its inception in 2013, the 21,39 Educational Program has experienced particularly success in attracting and discovering the Kingdom's future talent by consistently striving for and never falling short of a level of excellence. To this end, we strongly feel that Samsung demonstrates that it shares our ethos and determination in adding value and creating new opportunities to the members of our community, and we are honored and pleased to rely on the partnership and generous support of Samsung for this year’s 21,39 Educational Program.” Concluded Serafi.
The (21,39 Jeddah Arts) initiative displays an interesting cultural discipline in Jeddah, following the city’s rich history and authentic heritage. It also showcases the native art community and a myriad of innovative and creative work.
