MISSION

The French Institute in Kuwait is the agency for French cultural action in Kuwait.

Therefore, it is responsible for the implementation of the French cultural action through the dissemination of information, the fostering of artistic exchanges, and the promotion of cooperation.

The Franco-Kuwaiti cooperation in the cultural and artistic fields is part of the cultural development that France has achieved abroad. It also contributes to the mutual enrichment of Kuwait and France. Our scope covers the full range of cultural and artistic disciplines: music, dance, visual arts, drama, heritage, archaeology, architecture and debates; all of which reflects the diversity of French production and know-how.

Our cooperation is based on strong relations forged with local cultural operators, whether institutional or private: National Council for Culture, Arts and Letters, Dar al-Athar al-Islamiyah Cultural Center, Bayt Lothan Cultural Center, CAP Gallery, Kuwait Music, and with several organizations such as Loyac.

Since its establishment on January 1st, 2012, the French Institute in Kuwait has grown considerably and made a name for itself as a player and a major partner on the cultural and artistic scene by offering high quality programs on a regular basis. Within a rapidly shifting cultural landscape, the French Institute in Kuwait looks forward to conducting and consolidating projects with others actors of the cultural scene, including institutional or private organizations and associations. These partners are an essential part of our action and aim at establishing sustainable and long-lasting relationships between our two countries.
