GUST Hosts Bulgarian Cultural Night
GUST, in coordination with the Bulgarian Embassy in Kuwait, organized a unique Bulgarian Cultural Night last week. The event was under the patronage and attendance of Bulgarian Ambassador, H.E. Boris Borisov. The event, first of its kind at GUST, aimed to introduce and highlight Bulgarian culture, traditions, and arts.
The event began with a short film highlighting the rich cultural heritage of the 1300 year old Bulgarian state. It also welcomed The Foundation, a 5-piece band, formed in 2013 by K. Marichkov and some of the most prominent pop and rock musicians in Bulgaria, and opening act for The Rolling Stones. Attendees also got the chance to sample Bulgarian culture, art, and history with a photography and art exhibition by S. Nitsolov. The event was organized by Dr. Maya Mitkova, Assistant Professor at GUST, and Mr. Preslav Petkov, Woodwind Instrumental Tutor at Kuwait English School.
Dr. Maya Mitkova, said, “The cultural night captured the essence of the Bulgarian culture, and highlighted its beauty and richness in a lively and exciting manner. The relationship that has been built between GUST and the Embassy to create such a program is a promising one – and we hope to collaborate with the Embassy on many events such as this in the future.”
The event opened the door to unique insights about a country and culture. GUST, as the number one private university, continuously focuses efforts on connecting with various parts of the community, and engage its students in extracurricular activities that expose them to different cultures and points of view, to help them grow and develop into well-rounded citizens of the world.
