KU inaugurates Cana­dian stamps ex­hi­bi­tion

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

Kuwait Univer­sity's Dean of Stu­dents' Af­fairs opened the sec­ond Cana­dian stamps ex­hi­bi­tion on Mon­day un­der the aus­pices of Kuwait's Na­tional Coun­cil for Cul­ture, Arts and Let­ters (NCCAL) at Sheikh Jaber Ab­dul­lah Al-Jaber Theater in Al Shuwaikh.

In a state­ment on the side­lines of the in­au­gu­ra­tion, a Cana­dian em­bassy of­fi­cial ex­tolled the univer­sity's host­ing Cana­dian stamps ex­hi­bi­tion, of the Cana­dian cit­i­zen Joseph Khoury, which show­cases Canada's his­tory. The of­fi­cial stressed that the ex­hi­bi­tion is distin­guished as it shows mod­ern and old stamps, re­fer­ring to some stamps on Su­per­man and hockey game.

Mean­while, KU's dean Stu­dents' Af­fairs Dr Ali Al-Nami in a sim­i­lar state­ment stressed the im­por­tance of host­ing the ex­hi­bi­tion for the sec­ond year in a row as it sheds light on Canada's his­tory through stamps. He added that the KU aims to co­op­er­ate with var­i­ous bod­ies to show­case dif­fer­ent cul­tures.

Khoury told re­porters that the ex­hi­bi­tion aims to dis­sem­i­nate Cana­dian cul­ture in Kuwait as the stamps show his coun­try's his­toric de­vel­op­ment and its in­flu­ence by dif­fer­ent cul­tures. He said the ex­hi­bi­tion con­tains the first stamp of Canada dat­ing back to 1851, not­ing that it has all stamps is­sued since that date un­til 2016. He ex­pressed his grat­i­tude to Kuwait Univer­sity and NCCAL for spon­sor­ing his ex­hi­bi­tion. — KUNA
