DHAHRAN — The King Abdulaziz Center for World Culture (Ithra) launched the Alsharqiya Gets Creative initiative which welcomed the participation of the National Development Association in Al Qatif. The initiative supported designers and architects to share their artistic skills and diverse concepts in architecture, Arabic calligraphy, film and theater. These fields share similarities in the art and design field, giving them their unique outcomes.

From an event targeting architects and city developers, the Architecture and Design Group, under the supervision of engineer Maryam Al Awwa, revived the Smart Lighting (Hackathon) initiative, in addition to the Site Development Challenge which ignited the spirit of competition for the aim of developing the city center and reviving the economy.

Moreover, other programs were adopted, including: turning archaeological sites to tourist attractions in an effort to revive the province's economy, Aa interactive path with artificial intelligence, and interactive models; all targeting all ages to direct creativity towards the future.
