Cultural Program Opens in al-Hasa


WEBWIRE – Wednesday, December 05, 2012

Through the years, Saudi Aramco has a history of conducting successful programs designed to enlighten and entertain citizens and visitors throughout the Kingdom. From Dhahran to Riyadh and Jiddah to Ras Tanura, the company has extended its special brand of corporate social responsibility with a series of cultural programs that have been embraced by those who visit and take part in them.

This year, the company turned to the famous oasis at al-Hasa as the destination of its popular cultural offering. On Wednesday, Nov. 29, the Cultural Program was launched at King Abdullah Environmental Cultural Park in the presence of al-Hasa Gov. HH Prince Badr Bin Muhammad Bin Jalawi; Saudi Aramco senior vice president of Upstream Amin H. Nasser; and a number of government officials, area businessmen and several members of executive management at Saudi Aramco.

About 5,000 people filled the park for the kickoff of the event, which will run through Dec. 20.

“We in Saudi Aramco are always keen to communicate to our community through programs and events throughout the year, including the Cultural Program that has achieved great success in Dhahran, Riyadh and Jiddah,” Nasser said. “Today, it starts in the province of al-Hasa, and we hope its people will take advantage of it and enjoy it.”

The al-Hasa Cultural Program contains a variety of activities to suit all tastes and ages and meet the educational and recreational needs of visitors.

Large tents dotted the parks landscape and inside, workshops are offered on topics such as art, calligraphy, folklore and crafts. There are also interactive displays on dinosaurs, mangrove ecosystems, traffic safety and the history of Saudi Aramco.

The al-Hasa Cultural Program will receive visitors in two shifts through Dec. 20. The morning shift is for public and private school children to visit, with the evening sessions open to everyone.
