SADI is an ambitious program envisioned by Al Sadu Society to encourage creativity and innovation in textile arts and design for artists in Kuwait. The diverse textures and techniques, rich colors and bold symbolism found in textiles add to our growing appreciation and recognition of textiles as a contemporary fine art, and have led Sheikha Altaf Salem Al Sabah and the Al Sadu team to introduce this initiative. This program is aimed to foster artistic creativity by cooperating with different artists from all intrinsic disciplines. Our esteemed society members will assess applications and select artists to be enrolled in the program.
