Message from the founder

LAPA’s cumulative efforts for the advancement of the arts and cultural scene during the past ten years has instigated in creating an unparalleled footprint in Kuwait in making us a true pioneer in the domain. Our collaborations have led us to create important artistic connections and productions with key advocates of the arts in their respective forms in the region and the West.

It is for this reason why I firmly believe that the human civilization isn’t built only through the advocacy for sciences, but also through the Arts. The Arts is predominantly a prerequisite to the human interest as it rises mainly from the heart. It is from our belief and work that LAPA managed to contribute effectively in creating a cultural and artistic movement in the past ten years, that offers opportunities to the youth to work in different art fields, which activates the theatrical and artistic scene in Kuwait that impacts our communities into being more artistic, healthy, vibrant and equitable.
