About DAI

The Dar al-Athar al-Islamiyyah (DAI) is a cultural organisation based on a Kuwaiti private art collection owned by Sheikh Nasser Sabah al-Ahmed al-Sabah and his wife, DAI director general Sheikha Hussah Sabah al-Salem al-Sabah. Since its inception, the DAI has grown from a single focus organisation created to manage this prestigious loan of 30,000 art objects to become an internationally recognised cultural organisation. The comprehensive nature of the collection is reflected in the activities of the organisation: an annual lecture series, a quarterly magazine, a quarterly newsletter, travelling exhibitions, participation in appropriate exhibitions at museums throughout the world, conservation training programmes, an interactive cultural programme for children, research and archaeological projects, and the publication of scholarly books on art and culture in the Islamic world.
