A unique touristic artisanal destination, offering a wide variety of Bahraini made products by independent craftsmen under the theme “Hand Made with Love”
Our aim is encouraging national entrepreneurs and empowering them by developing their creativity and innovations through offering a positive venue to increase their visibility and allow public access to purchase and interact with the design and art community as well as supporting them to create and grow a business
Ministry of Industry and Commerce & Labour Fund “Tamkeen” have come together to support and encourage Bahraini entrepreneurs and associated institutions in realising their full creative potential through participation in “Plus 973” programme which is a part of the ‘Wehda Wahda’ campaign.
The programme, one of its kind, aims to nurture the entrepreneurial spirit and community participation of young Bahrainis in creative activities within an institutional set up. The programme enables the participants to enter the business with confidence and also provides an environment of mutual trust and learning from each other. The programme provides an opportunity to young Bahrainis to develop creative products under their own ‘Brand’ and market these through common participation in a permanent exhibition. The products range from paintings, sculptures, artifacts to fashion clothing and home furnishings.
Development of human resources and creative skills amongst young Bahrainis is a priority both for Ministry of Industry and Commerce & Labour Fund “Tamkeen” and it is hoped that this innovative project will lead to strengthening of community bonds at the same time building the business confidence of young entrepreneurs.
The Social Reconciliation National Project “Wi7da Wa7da” The Social Reconciliation National Project “Wi7da Wa7da” (One Unity) is the product of the collaborative efforts between all ministries and national institutions in the Kingdom of Bahrain since 2011. And today, this initiative stands as a testament to the creative partnership and cooperation between the Kingdom and its young entrepreneurs to promote a favorable culture of entrepreneurship and enterprise, illustrating the success of the mother project “Wi7da Wa7da”.
Launched in December 2011, the Campaign is comprised of three strategic phases for implementing a diverse breadth of innovative programs that have been instrumental in fostering widespread community participation.
The Social Reconciliation National Project “Wi7da Wa7da” has developed a broadly themed set of cultural, educational and recreational projects that build on the country’s core values of kinship, creativity and collective endeavor.
These programs have helped create compelling new paradigms that articulate Bahrain’s emergence as a driving force, set to meet the challenges of the 21st Century. As a result, “Wi7da Wa7da” has established a winning range of schemes and strategies that provide life changing experiences and opportunities to hundreds of Bahraini citizens across a wide spectrum of cultural, geographic, and socio-economic divides. We promote a culture of participation, communication, diversification and innovation – a community of national stewardship and initiative.
We aim to unite the people of Bahrain through a variety of activities and diverse programs to create awareness, understanding and inclusion. The creative entrepreneur project +973 Artisanat is one of the initiatives of “Wi7da Wa7da”, and it is under the supervision, followup and support of the Ministry of Industry & Commerce and Labour Fund “Tamkeen”. And today, it’s in its second and succesful phase that promotes the economical national projects. We are proud of the support provided by the Kingdom of Bahrain to the entrepreneurial citizen.
