King Abdulaziz Center for World Culture
In December 2016, the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman ibn ‘Abd Al-‘Aziz Al Sa’ud, presided over the official inauguration ceremony for the King Abdulaziz Center for World Culture, our flagship initiative for enabling the knowledge economy through creativity and culture.
The Center is the first institution of its kind in the Kingdom, bringing together multiple educational and cultural offerings under one roof. The Center will stimulate curiosity, provide opportunities, and challenge minds through traditional and unconventional resources in the arts and sciences, enabling and encouraging the innovators, entrepreneurs, and leaders of an economy built on knowledge and inventiveness. We anticipate the Center’s exhibits, programs, and workshops will draw 1.5 million visitors per year.
April of 2018 was a historic moment of honor and pride for Saudi Aramco, when the Center was chosen by The Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman ibn 'Abd Al-'Aziz Al Sa'ud to be the venue for the 29th Arab Summit event. For the Center, the summit was a fitting stage to showcase its potential to make a tangible and positive impact on human development. It also stands as a testament to the determination and commitment of the men and women who worked tirelessly to ensure the Center went beyond a mere concept to reality — becoming the iconic landmark it is today.
