Cultural Initiatives in North Africa and the Middle East
On the occasion of launching a capacity building project to the benefit of Tunisian cultural stakeholders (governmental institutions and civil society) for the preparation of periodic reports on the implementation of the UNESCO Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions 2005, the Kamel Lazaar Foundation was invited to present the ArtsMENA project.
This project, which will be officially launched by the end of this year, is a reviewed, updated and full version of Maghreb Directory, currently available on KLF website. It seeks to promote diversity of cultural expressions in the MENA region and to strengthen exchanges through enhancing the visibility of artists and cultural stakeholders. The event took place on 18 July 2016, in Ennajma Ezzahra Palace.
