Launch of the Center of Photographic Arts in Bahrain
Last Wednesday, 28th of January, the Ambassador inaugurated the Centre of Photographic Arts (CPA) established in the Jamsheer House, the Bahraini-French Cultural Centre in Muharraq.
This project is supported by the French Embassy, the Alliance française and the Shaikh Ibrahim Centre, and gathers young photographers from Bahrain and France. Through regular exhibitions, projections, conferences and residences, they aim to promote their art in the Kingdom and the Gulf. They will also offer photographic classes to adults, and initiation courses to the youngest.
About 250 visitors - among them many Saudi residents – attended the opening, which showcased a first exhibition of the work of the board members. The programme will start from February with the exhibition of the Bahraini artists Ghada Khunji.
