Riyadh- Twenty seven children have introduced creative scenes on the “Awalemna” theatre, organized by Mohammad bin Salman bin Abdul Aziz’s “MISK Foundation” at King Fahad Cultural Centre in Riyadh.

Scenes featured varied activities including educational and technical innovations, which showcased genuine achievements in acting and visual production along with paintings, and competitive sports performances on stage.
In an interactive scene attended by more than 2,500 children and their parents, around 200 children who partook in “Awalemna” joined their hands in a circle around the stage.

Around 170 children volunteered to organize this entertaining event which sought to motivate children on creativity and developing their skills by showing their experiences to their friends and families.

Children volunteering to participate in this event emphasized many perspectives, including their training on team spirit, shouldering responsibilities and showing their powers, growing a generation of volunteering youths, and spreading the volunteering culture in line with the Saudi Vision 2030.

By organizing “Awalem”, Mohammad bin Salman bin Abdul Aziz’s Organization aims to discover hidden talents and promote them by developing the children’s personal and performing skills, training them on self-learning tools and improving their potentials, enriching their imagination and qualifying them to develop their ideas.

The three-hour event focused on two main topics; the first was dedicated for wise and senior academics who spoke to inspire children with their innovated knowledge; and the second was dedicated for talent shows, which featured children who showcased their talents, innovations, artistic and scientific skills, aiming to encourage and support their peers.

Three children introduced a scene on the 19th century nobles, by dueling with swords, while children Abdullah al-Zahrani and Anas al-Ansari spoke about invention and technology. Another section of the event featured the child Jury al-Turki who spoke about her experience in painting.
