The Ministry of Culture implemented a digital visual display on the sides of the famous summit of Mount Tuwaiq, west of Riyadh, bearing the slogan of the “Year of Arabic Calligraphy” initiative, in order to enhance the mental image of the Year of Arabic Calligraphy initiative.
Furthermore, the Ministry of Culture worked to transform Arabic calligraphy from a cultural vessel into an icon representing an important element in the cultural identity of the Kingdom as it is the original historical source of Arab culture.
The Ministry organized the show in cooperation with the Qiddiya Investment Company at the summit of Jabal Tuwaiq on the occasion of the inauguration of the New Year of the “Year of Arabic Calligraphy” 2021 initiative.
This included the display of three other slogans next to the slogan of the Year of Arabic Calligraphy initiative, which is the slogan of the Kingdom’s Vision 2030, and the slogan of the Ministry of Culture which launched this initiative.
The lighting of Jabal Tuwaiq comes as part of the Ministry of Culture’s efforts to promote the “Year of Arabic Calligraphy” initiative launched by the Ministry and to celebrate the art of Arabic calligraphy.
