Bur­gan Bank suc­cess­fully con­cludes its spon­sor­ship of Den Gallery Expo

Kuwait Times - - FROM THE ARABIC PRESS -

KUWAIT: Bur­gan Bank, one of the lead­ing com­mer­cial banks in Kuwait is proud to an­nounce its suc­cess­ful spon­sor­ship of the Open­ing of ‘Den Gallery’ Expo held at the Crys­tal Tower, start­ing De­cem­ber 14. The month long con­tem­po­rary arts ex­hi­bi­tion will en­counter the par­tic­i­pa­tion of 33 Kuwaiti and GCC artists un­der one roof.

The open­ing of the ex­hi­bi­tion met great at­ten­dance from those in­ter­ested in art and cul­ture, specif­i­cally in the ar­eas of paint­ing, draw­ing, sculpt­ing and graph­ics, and was open to the pub­lic through­out the ex­hi­bi­tion pe­ri­ods.

The ‘Den Gallery’ expo is a non-profit project, es­tab­lished by a group of well-known and as­pir­ing Kuwaiti artists dis­play­ing their unique and cul­tural art with con­tem­po­rary ap­proaches. The aim of these pas­sion­ate artists is to present new ideas and heights to mod­ern Kuwaiti art, to in­tro­duce and el­e­vate the con­cept of art and cul­ture within all seg­ments of the com­mu­nity, in the area of paint­ing, draw­ing, sculp­tur­ing and graph­ics.

Bur­gan Bank al­ways looks for­ward to par­tic­i­pat­ing in such projects that pre­serve and pro­mote the Kuwaiti cul­ture and this stems from its strong be­lief in giv­ing back to lo­cal com­mu­nity while en­cour­ag­ing them to be­come ac­tive mem­bers in the so­ci­ety. It is wor­thy to note that the ex­hi­bi­tion opens its doors from De­cem­ber 14, 2016 up to Jan­uary 14, 2017, in or­der to give a chance to all those in­ter­ested to at­tend and en­joy con­tem­po­rary art in all its shapes and forms.

Den Gallery presents some of the most mes­mer­iz­ing and ap­plaud able art pieces from around Kuwait, and the bank is proud to be part of this ini­tia­tive for a sec­ond con­sec­u­tive year and looks for­ward to more fruit­ful spon­sor­ships in the com­ing years.

It is worth men­tion­ing that Bur­gan Bank’s sup­port to this ini­tia­tive falls un­der its re­cently launched 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.
