Bareed ad-Dar is the Dar al-Athar al-Islamiyyah newsletter. Distributed to Friends of the DAI around the world, Bareed (as it’s commonly known) serves as both a report on happenings within the DAI and The al-Sabah Collection and a reminder of upcoming activities. This informal publication records the adventures of Friends participating in cultural trips and the reactions of visitors to The al-Sabah Collection exhibitions held abroad. The annual cultural season is launched, reviewed and promoted in the newsletter. The extensive use of photos – of people, places and objects from the collection – ensures that readers are kept in the picture.
