Bur­gan Bank spon­sors Nuqat Cre­ative Con­fer­ence For four con­sec­u­tive years

Kuwait Times - - FROM THE ARABIC PRESS -

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.
