Bhutanese artists to showcase their talents in Kuwait


Sep 24, 2012

Bhutan will showcase its culture, performing arts, crafts, paintings and weaving for three days in Kuwait. The exhibition starts tomorrow. This is the first time Bhutan is taking part in the cultural exhibition in the State of Kuwait. Some 23 Bhutanese dancers, cultural officer, experts from the agriculture and environment will take part in the programme.

Participants and officials of the Bhutanese embassy are busy preparing for the big day tomorrow.

According to our reporter, Sonam Ugyen who is in Kuwait, the Bhutanese Ambassador to Kuwait, Dasho Tashi Phuntsho, is monitoring the preparation to ensure nothing goes wrong during the event.

” The event is one of the activities preceding the Asian Cooperation Dialogue summit which will be held in Kuwait sometime in October this year,” said Dasho Tashi Phuntsho.

The cultural exhibition is expected to help promote Bhutan in Kuwait. The diplomatic ties between the two countries were established since 1983. Kuwait is one of the only six Bhutanese diplomatic missions and the only in the Middle East.

Although geographically far apart, Bhutan and Kuwait shares similar emphasis on the preservation of tradition and culture and national development goals.

This cultural programme was supposed to be organized a few years back, but due to budget constraints, it had to be shelved aside for a while.

The Kuwait National Council of Arts is financial supporting Bhutan to make the show possible.
