Saudi commissions showcase Kingdom’s heritage in Paris
Two Saudi cultural commissions are highlighting the Kingdom’s heritage and traditions at a major retail festival in Paris, the Saudi Press Agency has reported.
The Theater and Performing Arts Commission and the Heritage Commission are both participating in Foire de Paris. The Theater and Performing Arts Commission is presenting seven shows exploring the cultural heritage of various parts of the Kingdom, while the Heritage Commission is introducing visitors to the distinct traditional handicraft styles and techniques of Saudi Arabia.
Both commissions are part of the Saudi Ministry of Culture, which is mandated to promote and preserve the cultural treasures of the Kingdom as part of Saudi Vision 2030, which seeks to diversify the Kingdom’s economy.
The annual festival, which began in 1904, runs until May 8 at Paris Expo Porte de Versailles in the French capital.
