AWARE Center- Dishdasha Night & Kuwaiti Food

Join us at AWARE for a special event! Dress up in Traditional clothing and taste delicious Traditional Kuwaiti food. This event will be opened by the screening of one of Kuwaiti poet Nejoud Al-Yagout's creative works "This is an Imprint" followed by drawing names of people who will receive a signed copy of Nejoud's book. Prior registration required at joumana@aware.com.kw

Nejoud Al-Yagout has lived in many places globally, including China, Pakistan, UAE, Italy and the UK. Since her father was an ambassador of Kuwait, she lived a nomadic life. She returned to Kuwait after the invasion. Al-Yagout currently works as a librarian and loves being surrounded by books and students. She developed a passion for writing poetry in her early teens. In her own words, it was a cathartic way to express emotions buried deep inside.

Her poetry includes themes such as transcendence of suffering, the awareness of the ego and the presence of the higher self. She also explores grief, loss and identity crisis to reflect the state of our collective consciousness. Her debut book, This is an imprint, presents poems which reflect such states, whilst offering a higher perspective of being which transcends thought.

Here's the link to my post about my visit. It's a really fun even and I would encourage all newbies to Kuwait to attend.

  1. Hello I have a question:

    Who are the Kuwaiti ministry employees at government ministries? Like, do they speak English, what is their background (hadhar or bedu?), can you please answer the question

    I am Kuwaiti but I have never been to a government ministry, I'd like to understand who are the Kuwaitis working at the ministries

  2. Well, there are niqabi, hather old and young. Most of them don't speak English but there are a few and they are nicer. It's better to just bite your tongue and not say anything or they will not do the paperwork and tell you come back tomorrow.
