Burgan Bank sponsors Nuqat Creative Conference For four consecutive years
Burgan Bank is delighted to announce its sponsorship of the seventh edition of Nuqat Creative Conference, took place at the Americani Cultural Center from 13-16 November 2016. Supporting and encouraging creative thinking and thought-provoking platforms helps Arab youth unleash their creativity and potential, and the Nuqat Conference has proven highly effective in achieving this. Burgan Bank, being a long-term partner of the conference, sponsoring it for four consecutive years, remains committed and engaged with local communities. The Bank believes that education, in all its forms, plays a crucial role in fuelling growth, creating opportunities for everyone and providing creative solutions to 21st century challenges.
Nuqat is a not-for profit organization that aims to nurture creativity and curiosity in adults by boosting out of the box thinking in various walks of life. The Nuqat Conference, an annual event, brings together thousands of participants to discuss the current state of creativity in the Arab world. This year’s event, “The Seventh Sense: Powering the Creative Economy”, looked at how innovation in business and technology has contributed to growing creative industries in the Middle East and around the world.
Burgan Bank’s support of this initiative falls under its full-fledged community program entitled ‘ENGAGE’ Together to be the change. This program sheds light on important aspects affecting every segment of the society by promoting social welfare through educational, cultural, social and health initiatives. Burgan Bank’s approach to ‘ENGAGE’ begins with a vital principle that as a Kuwaiti financial institution, its conduct and policies should be aligned with the needs and interests of the Kuwaiti society.
