I received an email long time ago about Kuwait participating in some sort of an exhibition in Venice. I didn't understand a word from it, it involves very long names of institutions that are collaborating together to produce something, I tried my best and this is the simplest way to put it:
Kuwait will be participating for the FIRST time in an international Architecture Exhibition called La Biennale di Venezia. Kuwait participation will be under the name of Kethra. A group of architects will be working together to build a pavilion that will be exhibited in Venice. Opening day 29 August until the 25 November.
The Venice Biennale (La Biennale di Venezia) is the most prestigious cultural institutions in the world. It organises international events in the field of the contemporary arts that are amongst the most important of their kind in the world.

Unfortunately I couldn't attend the launch of Kuwait participation event (occupied with family gatherings in Ramadan) . There were discussions and workshops that was held in Al-Qiblia School in Kuwait City from 30 July to 1 August.
