Culture and ICT

The Ministry of Culture seeks to establish cultural centres in all urban and rural areas in every governorate and provide these centres with computers to disseminate IT culture (♥). Young artists specializing in new technologies work on the basis of an international visual language, which is linked to contemporary international arts. Alternative, non-governmental initiatives, such as All Arts Now, are active in all the contemporary arts, with the aim of supporting young artists.
