Starbucks in Kuwait is promoting art, and music in four of their 63 locations. Young artists can exhibit and sell their works free of charge in a rotating scheme.
This could be a first step for a widening and popular need for arts, expressions, venues to show it all.
It is the time to show talents and for talents to go ahead and project their works.
Will Alshaya company be the new patron of arts in the middle east? Will they widen their program to the so many other retail locations they have?
Or will they just look at the numbers and see if this increases or stagnate their sales and decide accordingly if art is worth the effort?
While it lasts, talents, please, jump on the wagon and enjoy the ride.. it can be a good opportunity to interact with your creativity. and on your way out, buy a cafe latte half skimmed, half full, decaf and low on the foam barrista.
