Kuwait had a Japanese Pop culture festival 10 days ago. It was held at Kuwait’s National Library, and was a smash hit.
The festival was organized by Fikra, a local company, with the help of other Kuwaiti youth. The Ambassador of Japan came to the event because of his prior relations to Fikra, and he was the one who supplied the venue through the Cultural council. While the M.O.Youth just sent an undersecretary, and that was the extent of the ministry’s involvement in thr festival.
Anyways, the M.O.Youth took credit of this hugely successful event, and claimed it organized the whole festival. Reducing the efforts of Fikra and friends to that of associates or volunteers. The ministry later half tried to correct this, slightly amending their claim to a more honest one.
The festival took months of hard work and expenses to get it organized successfully. Contacting people and businesses, getting the cubicles and booths setup, organizing the costume and anime contests and prizes, and getting the display objects. All that took a great deal of effort and money.
If this festival was in Dubai, it wold be the kind that gets the personal appearance of Sh. Mohammad Bin Rashid. But here in Kuwait, the Ministry shamelessly robs the efforts of the young youth instead of supporting them. Shame on you.

Update: When I said paintings, I didn’t mean oil and water color ones. These are digitally designed posters of art. Sorry for the confusion.
This selection of interesting paintings are done by a local Kuwaiti artist, named Ahmad Al-Ghanim. I found them at Thouq Shop in Mubarakiya area.
There’s a semi-big selection of medium and large paintings, all following the same amusing and witty vibrant-colored theme. My personal favorites are the Sheishaman, UmKalthoum, and the Kaifi painting. Prices are from KD 45-70, for the med and large ones respectively; and they’re come sold with thick frames.
The shop is filled with many other cute things, like locally designed T-shirts and sweatpants, bracelets, ashtrays, mugs, and some cool traditional Kuwaiti books. I’ll post about them soon.
You can find the shop in Mubarakiya area, in a tiny alley between the big and white Kuwait RE parking building and Sarareef St.
Thouq is widely known, and you should check out their online men style magazine. The shop itself is new, and was just recently opened a few days ago. You can also check them out on Twitter or Instagram for more details, or call on Tel. 65656560.
