The Arab Media Forum held Monday a Kuwaiti heritage event for Kuwaiti journalists, aimed at highlighting importance of preserving traditions and culture of the Gulf country.
The "Heritage of a Nation" event was held in Bait Al-Othman Museum in cooperation with Kuwait Heritage Team and Kuwait society for media and communication.
Arab Media Forum secretary general Madhi Al-Khamees said Kuwaiti heritage was full of genuine values "which compel everybody to preserve them and pass them to future generations." He said Bait Al-Othman was one of the key places in heritage, and it was symbolizing literature, values and traditions.
Head of Kuwait Heritage team Anwar Al-Rifae underlined importance of development and modernity but without forgetting "our heritage and tradition." The Kuwaiti heritage, he added, was based on love between community members.
Al-Rifaee called for sticking to the heritage and traditions "which are the backbone of society." He said the heritage also meant views, ideas, poetry, arts and artifacts.
