Waqar Naseem Wamiq, Riyadh – The European Union Delegation EU to Saudi Arabia and the Museums Commission successfully concluded their first five-day workshop on museum management titled “Museums and their role in our societies” conducted by top European experts at the Saudi National Museum.

The workshop, which was the first in a series of four, was designed to enhance the knowledge and expertise of all interested parties, including students, in the growing cultural sector. The EU, which works to preserve Europe’s shared cultural heritage and to support and promote the arts and creative industries in Europe, was proud to lend its support to the booming cultural sector in Saudi Arabia.

EU Ambassador to Saudi Arabia, H.E. Patrick Simonnet said “We are extremely delighted by the success of the first workshop in the series and thank the Museum Commission and the Ministry of Culture for such fruitful collaboration. Museums have a special role to play in helping us stay rooted in a world that is changing at an ever-increasing speed, and we hope that this workshop series will shed more light on the importance of these places for our shared humanity and heritage.”

Dr. Taghreed Alsaraj, General Manager of Education & Talent Development at the Museum Commission added. “We are delighted to have this collaboration with the EU delegation in Saudi Arabia. We enjoyed co-designing this series of workshops that will benefit students, educational institutions, and the general public interested in history and different cultures. Museums provide us with knowledge and experience which all societies can benefit from”.
