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.
