The concept of culture in Kuwait is transient. To an outsider, the exotic appeal of an Arabian adventure may seem enticing, but the ground reality is an entirely different story. Of course, Kuwait is home to many talented artists, writers, poets, performers and museums, art galleries and screenings. But there is some reluctance on the part of the general population to acquaint themselves with culture. The kulturefiles volumes are quarterly issues which try to introduce culture events and artists by making an awareness of cultural surroundings in Kuwait and around the world.
