The Center for the History of the Red Sea and the West of Saudi Arabia, affiliated with the King Abdulaziz Foundation for Research and Archives (Darah), launched on Sunday the “Compass” program, marking the beginning of a series of interactive initiatives aimed at preserving and highlighting the national history of the Red Sea and the Kingdom's western region.

The move is part of a larger regional documentation program initiated by Darah to explore innovative ideas and boost cognitive and cultural content about the diversity of the Red Sea through digital production, culture, arts, emerging technologies, and artificial intelligence.

It includes skill-testing competitions designed to simplify educational content about the Red Sea, accompanied by creative products and solutions, as well as a variety of enrichment activities and ideas.

The program, running daily until July 25, is being held in cooperation with the College of Communication and Media at King Abdulaziz University in Jeddah, the “Let’s Provide an Initiative” program affiliated with Jeddah Governorate, the Historic Jeddah Program, and the Saudi Committee for Popular Games.

It provides an opportunity for all university students, graduates, and interested individuals to participate and compete by presenting their creative ideas in a stimulating and inspiring environment.
